About Kelli

Growing up in rural Pennsylvania gave me an appreciation for the beauty of nature and I began photographing landscapes and sunsets.  I also knew that I wanted to travel and see the world.  I viewed photography as the career that I could take anywhere.  Chicago is where I landed and I love it here.

Now I see the beauty in more than just sunrises and landscapes.  I see the beauty in my children, my dog, my friends, and my community. From these things, I am inspired to make my art.  

I love museums, cooking, London, and horses.  My kids make me laugh and remind me to be humble. I create art for and with them and we share our creative spirits (even when, to their dismay, I cover them in moss). 

These days my art is also very much inspired by my dog, Tess!  She is funny and loving and she sparks my love of photographing animals. 

I am a Master Photographer through Professional Photographers of America and have won numerous photographic awards.  I teach, I learn, and I create.
