OWNER/MANAGER - Kelly Cushing
Born and raised in Vancouver and Burnaby, BC Canada, photography has been my lifelong passion. From the moment my dad gifted me my first Pentax K1000 camera on my 13th birthday, I was captivated by the art of capturing moments. Growing up, my father was the family photographer, and we would eagerly gather around the screen to view his slides every few months, igniting my love for visual storytelling.
I began photographing everything around me: my brother, friends, flowers, animals, and the vibrant landscapes of Vancouver. Fueling my passion, I pursued formal education in Professional Photography at Langara College, acquiring invaluable skills and knowledge. However, when I became pregnant with my first son while working at Sherwood Studios, I had to make the difficult decision to leave the job due to the chemicals involved in the printing process.
During the early 90s, my focus shifted as I took on a role as a Mom, prioritizing the well-being and care of my two children. My second son, who has severe autism, required my unwavering attention, and photography took a backseat during those demanding years. Despite the challenges, seeing my sons grow into remarkable individuals has been the greatest joy and accomplishment of my life.
As life took unexpected turns, including the end of my marriage and my son entering care with dedicated professionals, I found myself rediscovering my own identity. Photography resurfaced as a significant part of who I am. Embracing the digital era, I adapted to the advancements and mastered PhotoShop through various courses, enabling me to fully embrace the possibilities of digital photography.
It was during this period that I encountered an artist who introduced me to innovative ways of showcasing my work at markets. Utilizing reclaimed wood, I discovered a budget-friendly approach to display my photography in a unique and distinctive manner.
Although I had initially envisioned establishing a physical gallery, circumstances led me on a different path. Nonetheless, my passion for art and photography continues to drive me forward. I am grateful for your visit and for supporting art and small businesses like mine. Together, let's celebrate the beauty of visual expression and the power of art.
