Meet the lady behind the biz.
Kelly Graham / Artist + Designer + Maker / Based in Vancouver, BC
After attending university for Commercial Animation, I spent 7 years working in video games as a digital artist, production manager and user experience designer. But I still dreamed of living that unconventional creative life. Makers gotta make! I heard the call and listened up. Summer of 2017, I left my day job and The Funky Fresh was born.
The name Funky Fresh comes from a slang adjective I love from the 90’s hip hop era. I associate it with being fun, colourful and unique. My favourite Urban Dictionary definition: “A term used to describe something that is cool, likeable or enjoyable that is also new.”
I believe that everyone is creative in their own way, and can embrace it to take a break from the busy stresses of life. I currently work as a freelance artist, collaborating with local businesses on their creative projects. I’m also working on my dreamiest of dreams - The Funky Fresh Art Shop! To share my love of stationery art and bring small joys to the people.
Thanks for visiting my creative hot spot on the interwebs!
Come get inspired.
