Kelly began her study of design after she returned from shooting fashion photography in Paris. Her skills and years of experience in photography helped sharpen her eye for graphic design. While in design school, Kelly continued producing, directing and shooting her own fashion editorial spreads for fun and for submissions. She also created her own magazine project, “LURK”, where she managed many roles as the editor, photographer, and layout designer. In 2013, LURK Magazine won the Gold Award in the Graphis International New Talent Awards.

Kelly has continued her international resumé by working for the Thomas.Matthews Design studio in London, as well as directing and photographing fashion shoots in Berlin. Currently, she is fulfilling the roles of editor and layout designer for several online style blogs, as well as freelance designing for a multitude of different clients. 

In addition, Kelly has recently launched www.krmphotohouse.com, which features her own photography from her travels through Europe. KRM PHOTO HOUSE is known for featuring the complex and beautiful details of classic architecture printed on metal, which gives the image a sense of depth and luminosity. KRM PHOTO HOUSE also features a collection of framed prints, as well as prints on canvas.
