The art of Jeff Kemna
"Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile." -- Albert Einstein
I Believe I was given my Purpose in Life, a gift of Expression. A Minnesotan, I've always been artsy...and fascinated and curious about Nature & wildlife. Educated and experienced favoring pro level photography with a realistic painting style, I recently challenged myself to display my work of 40 years that includes commissioned, on-site pet photos and paintings (PhoDography), wildlife, sports figures that were published and sold at Target, state wildlife stamp contests, international landscape and underwater photo & videography and lately, street and product photos (Foodography!)
Expanding in my New studio, I am mixing science and art in 3D with glass, mirror and light projects. Ooh, look - shiny!
Laughing and unafraid, I'm excited to produce something for you that is timeless and memorable!
Professionally, I was a corporate graphic designer for 21 years, but had several other "artsy" jobs in layout, design and presentation. I am skilled with Photoshop restoration and manipulation. I've done large scale sign painting and murals, logo design, technical and architectural drawings and more!
Check out the pages below showing my work!

This gallery shows some artwork I've been hired to create over 40 years. Most are unique realistic paintings with some that went to print and were sold at Target. I kept a few originals that are now for sale in my store! I hope they inspire you as they have inspired me. Click the "See the Art Inventory" button to see the full inventory.
Over the years I have taken many high quality photos in my adventures. These photos can now bring style to your walls. The prints come in standard sizes with custom sizes available upon request, including billboard! You also have the option to have them professionally framed, ready to hang on your wall.
Do you have a story to tell? This section contains a collection of images and video clips that you can download that will aide in illustrating your ideas.
