About

Photography has been my passion almost 40 years

I met an amazing artist at a market once and we started talking, we bought one of her pieces and exchanged info. Not long later she wanted to buy a photograph of a dragonfly I took. We met, exchanged the image and talked about her art. She offered to teach me how to do a few things.

She was a huge catalyst for me to do what I do now. She taught me different things but gave me a direction. She introduced me to an art class which I took that gave me the idea of putting my photographs onto wood. I learned the basics of the photo transfer technique that I use now. I have modified it with time to make it my own.
I have wanted to sell my photography but I got stuck at just offering prints. I wanted to give people a finished product that they wouldn't have to frame or do anything to but find a place in their home for their new artwork. For the people who are more organized some people (me), I do have prints as well.

I find the wood in different places. Sometimes it's old fences, pallets, extra pieces from other people's projects. I sand it all down, cut it to the right sizes, and cut biscuit holes for the wood to be more secure. I then glue the biscuit and pieces of wood together and white wash the top side. Once that is dry, I put down the transfer and wait again for that to dry. I get a bowl of water and take the paper off the transfer. For the finishing touches, I staple the back, add a hanger and varnish the photograph.

I started with Art Cards and Wall Art and added coasters, then magnets. First I just sold my work but I had so many questions about custom work, I incorporated that as well.

    My dad got me my first camera on my 13th birthday and I haven't put it down for very long since. Both my father and my grandfather were avid photographers. I got the shutterbug gene for sure.

Additional Policies/Information

Although all of images are color compatible for viewing online, most computer monitors vary in their color configurations and the images that you see may not have accurate color representation. If you are concerned about an image's color, please contact me prior to purchase.

The purchase of a print or any variation of the image, does not transfer copyright or reproduction rights.

Custom and personalised orders

Photographs may be altered, to increase clarity, colour and contrast to allow for best image for you. If you would not like this, please indicate with the photograph sent. Photographs for transfers must be sent to kellycushingphoto@gmail.com. I may send back an email with any questions or if image is not satisfactory for size requested.

Any question, requests or information needed to get the result wanted must be sent with the photograph.

The photograph may alter in colour as most monitors have slight to moderate colour variations. Please let me know if there are any concerns immediately.

Most custom orders will be shipped in a week. If needed quicker, please indicate time needed and I will try to accommodate the fastest I can.

Sizing details

The sizes indicated are estimates of the size of the photograph. The size of the wood is generally larger to give the border effect.

The photograph size is not exact, usually bigger, especially with the 11x14. I can go up to 11x17 in some incidences.
