Get to know the artists, #6.

Always in demand, photographer Kelly Jackson has an abundant and natural ability to discover gorgeous compositions, be it human or otherwise, with her camera.

From her site: My desire is to always shoot more from my heart than my head. Though there are rules to follow and techniques to assist, I believe photography is about moments - emotions - breath - finding the beauty in the every day and the extraordinary in the commonplace.

She has a healthy wanderlust, as well, that has served as both cultural invitation and scrumptious buffet of subjects for her fine art photography, such as the buildings of Prague, Midtown life in Manhattan and as you will find next Thursday: the beauty of Venice.

With a client list that includes The New Yorker, Wine Spectator, Notre Dame, Microsoft, Apple, The American Red Cross, Carnegie Endowment and an award list that boasts American Illustration, Print Regional Design Annual, Applied Arts Magazine, Pixel Perfect, Harper Collins and Graphis, Ken Orvidas and his illustrations have excelled.

Ken's art often features conceptual images using digital tools, paint, graphic illustrations using pencil, acrylic, scanned textures and objects. He creates illustrations for books, magazines and new media. Keep an eye out for his style the next time you peruse through your fave magazine and of course, next Thursday ...
