Constructing his work from discarded ephemera: cereal boxes, flooring remnants, and leftover gift wrap, MacLelland’s Boston and Cape Cod based mixed media studio practice is eco-conscious. His palette is dominated by saturated colors that echo the brightly painted buoys that bob atop the ebb and flow of ocean waves,
When Keith’s not making or teaching, you can find him living a happy life in Wellfleet, MA with his wife, step-daughter, three cats and one dog, Buoy, shucking fresh picked oysters, or beachcombing the dunes of Cape Cod’s National Seashore.
