Kevin Felts' Profile

About

Originally from California, I've called Oregon home for over 30 years. I'm blessed to live in the Portland area where creativity, and the opportunities to exercise creativity abound! My personal life and professional life have both always had a visual component to them. I shoot both stills and video as my vocation and avocation.

When my grandmother passed away a number of years ago, I inherited a large collection of old postcards and photographs that she collected over her long life. Back "in the day," cameras were scarce, and the only way to affordably keep in touch with friends and loved ones was through the mail. Vacations and relocations were announced with hand-tinted postcards from everywhere around the globe. The collection is filled with family history, and visual clues as to what life was like in the late 1900s and early 20th century. Having a physical reminder of the…

Having a physical reminder of the comings and goings of our family is a treasure!

Combining the love of my "inheritance" with my years as a photographer led me to create my etsy store. Cabin40 Card Shop is all about unique, high quality artistic greeting cards that will let the recipient know that they are someone special.

These are not "read and throw away" cards, but small works of art that will be reminders of your thoughtfulness for months, and years to come. Like my collection, they may live on to be a tangible record of family history, or a pleasant memory that lives far beyond the span of our lives.

Each image has been captured, or re-touched and assembled by me personally. I love photography and creative design, and I pour as much as I can of myself into each and every image I feature here.

For a few pennies more than you'd spend on a mass-produced card, you can purchase a small work of art that will set you and your sentiment apart from all the rest.
Thanks for visiting! I sincerely hope you like what you see.

All the Best,
Kevin Felts
