Kelly McGroty is the resident artist of Dragon Fire
Studio, previously Kai-nyra Metal art. He is a self taught
artist; always being good with his hands and a tendency
to be drawn to fire have turned out to be a great
combination. Kelly started out building little people out
of horse shoe nails, "nail guys". Working with copper
and bronze as accessories with the nails inspired Kelly
to fiddle fart around and try making bigger sculptures.
His wife always his number one supporter in his art, still rolls
her eyes whenever he gets a new idea saying "Here we go
again." Then she usally shake her head and laughs at him.
Kellys four children spend almost as much time in his shop
as he does giving him ideas and helping out. Pretty
impressive considering none of them are teenagers yet.
Kelly now makes a wide variety of things and welds
everything from large sculpures, little flowers, even his
neighbors trailer down the street. Kelly has an easy going,
laid back attitude, believeing life is to short to be uptight, or
get to worked up over things. "Enjoy it as it comes and make
the best out of whatever life throws your way."
