For those that don't know, my name is Kelly Turner. Most know me as Kelly T. I am Michigan Born and Colorado living. Growing up an avid snowboarder and skater, I am glued to the idea of combining these sports with my creativity. I have experience with apparel design and photography with various start up companies, but I wanted to grow my ideas and passion into bigger opportunities.
It all began back in the day when i was digging through the attic for my little brothers skateboard. I was so intrigued and in search of myself. I Started by rolling down the driveway on my skateboard and then it slowly transitioned into my best friend mckenzie taking her brothers snowboard and gifting it to me so I could get out and ride Pine Knob after school.
I fell in love with board sports. Maybe it was the adrenaline, but it definitely defined me as a person. I like to think it saved my life.
Back in two thousand twelve I was in art school in Colorado still figuring out what the hell I wanted to do with my life. I was taking an apparel and merchandising class where we were required to create a whole fashion line and start up company before the end of the semester. Instead of treating this as an assignment, I made it a reality.
Since, I have graduated, traveled around the world, made art and worked my ass off to do so. this company is close to my heart. I have a lot of fight, passion and strength in me, yet, as many times as I apply for a career, work hard to move up in a job or try to prove my worth, it all goes un-noticed.
So here I am with a dream and a skateboard. I have been painting for years, but no paper has seen the ambition my skate decks hold. I am stoked to bring my apparel to life and to continue working on a canvas for myself that holds and displays my passion in new and inspiring ways.
I want to celebrate this lifestyle & i would love for you to join!
