My Story

Creating art has been my life's passion. I have a Bachelor's degree in Graphics Art from Bozeman, MT, and have worked in advertising and graphic design for the majority of my career. As the president of Kelly's Signs in Great Falls, MT, I create unique logos, designs, graphics, and signs for businesses across Montana.

I have lived in Great Falls all my life except for a short one and a half year stint in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am a small town boy at heart. Day to day experiences provide my inspiration.

I love looking through the lens of my camera and capturing the beauty of the flora and fauna of our vast state. Great Falls and Montana provide the perfect setting for me to extend my passion of creating art from photography to  oil painting to rendering pencil sketches to cartooning. Whether photographing, drawing or painting;  I look to capture the deepest sense of raw beauty I can find so I can evoke emotion in you, the viewer.



I hope my products give you the sense of simple beauty of everyday life no matter where you reside.
