KiptonART Featured Artist Curtis Kelly

Why do you work in this particular medium?
I work in oils because the colors are so rich and luscious. I like to work in layers to get a kind of "see-through" quality and depth that oils provide. This works well both with canvas and with paper-a slight "shimmering" effect. Read Kelly's feature in KiptonART Magazine.

KiptonART Featured Artist Michael Thompson

KiptonART Featured Artist MICHAEL THOMPSON
At what age did you know you were an artist? What was the first work of art you created?
I enjoyed photography from an early age because I was constantly focused on the pictures in my grandmother's National Geographics. The images were so rich and just seemed to transport me away from everywhere else. I took art classes early on, but it wasn't until college 2001 that I took my first photography class, and now I am a huge photography nerd. I used to spend my Friday and Saturday nights in college printing in the black and white dark room until they would kick me out, and then once they gave me a key I would stay all night, sometimes missing other classes because I would fall asleep. It didn't bother me because I had found my passion. I still have the first picture I ever printed, and while they photo itself isn't exciting and I can definitely print much better, it is a nice memento of where I started out.
