Kelly Clemmer is an Albertan artist that is employed full time as a marketing manager. Kelly attended Alberta College of Art in 1990 – 1994, and was a jewellery and metal arts major. After moving back to Wainwright, Alberta, Kelly tried his hand at doing custom jewellery, but after working as a prep cook, bartender and even a part owner of a card and comic shop, he became a working journalist at a weekly newspaper for over 16 years.
“Art and making art has always been part of who I am,” said Clemmer. “I started drawing at a very young age, mostly knights and dragons and that passion has been with me since then. Art school was a great experience, but that didn’t make me an artist, having some talent and the drive to always get better is what makes me an artist.”
