About My Fine Art Illustration Prints & Process

Fine art illustration prints are a combination of traditional and digital mediums. Sometimes the process of my work includes using the digital medium for parts of a piece in order to achieve a final and beautiful creation. This may include touch-ups, shading, color, or combining multiple layers. The nature of this process naturally means that the final piece is translated from a digital format to a hard format in the form of a fine art print. For a frame of reference, the final product of fine art photography is the same essential process.  Most of my fine art illustration prints are created in limited edition runs of small numbers. Each piece is numbered and signed by me, the artist. Adhering to small runs of limited quantities ensures that you are indeed receiving a unique and rare piece of art. Most prints are offered with size options in standard sizing, making it easy to mat or frame a piece. An example of this is that Untitled Work Number 1 has been printed in 3 different sizes with only 50 prints per size. You purchase a print in size 11×14 and receive number 12/50 because only 50 were made in that size run.  I use a professional printer based in the Midwest and all pieces are printed with archival quality inks and matte paper. Utilizing fine quality printing truly makes a difference in the final product, and it is my hope that the print you receive looks as good, if not better, than an original would look.

The Professional Details

My name is Kelly Yeomans. I’m a freelance artist and illustrator based in the driftless region of SW Wisconsin. I work primarily in drawing and painting mediums, as well as some digital. I live in a beautiful region of limestone bluffs, river valleys, wooded hills, and farmland pastures. My work is inspired by the nature which surrounds me.

I grew up in the glorious 80’s in a Michigan suburb outside of Detroit and graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2002 with a BFA in Illustration. During my time in college I also studied a term at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland.

Growing up, I spent most of my time outside, and as a young adult, pursuing outdoor adventures and exploring remote areas. Like my love for nature, creating art was something that I’ve always done and seemed to be a natural expression of myself from an early age.

After college my career led me into graphic design, and since then I have worked for a variety of clients and employers in graphic design, photography, and video.  Additional professional experience includes visual display, printmaking, and a ceramics studio.

All of my experiences have matured me as an artist and person, ultimately bringing me to the place I am today, which is right back where I started; a girl playing in the woods and drawing the images that dance across her mind.

When I’m not working on my art I have an insatiable need to be active. I can be found managing my gardens and forests and enjoying active sport. When I finally spend all of my creative and physical energy and need to sit, I pursue reading, writing, and learning.
