Kelly’s story:

"I discovered the field of graphic recording at SXSW in 2010, and I was hooked at first sight. Right away, I thought to myself, “Yes! This is how my brain works!” And in that moment, I recalled a lifelong impulse to pepper my notes with practical and inspiring doodles. I knew it was something I was meant to do.
I was already in the business of creating clear and compelling communication, so this was a natural next step for me. Throughout my career, I’ve balanced a knack for words and images, moving seamlessly between verbal and visual communication, blending my skills as a graphic designer, freelance journalist, photo editor, and digital marketer.
But more than that--I felt called to the challenge of capturing meaning and translating it, taking complex concepts and making them understood, and tapping into the energy of conveying ideas to an audience in real-time. I’m serving as an interpreter of sorts, not entirely unlike my mom, who is a sign language interpreter. Maybe it’s genetic. ;-)  
It wasn’t long before Kingman Ink opened for business, and we’ve grown quickly by word-of-mouth, as happy clients and attendees helped us spread the word."
