Krisjan Klenow

My goal is to transform; tell a story by revealing that intangible something that is uniquely feminine, alluring and dare I say, "slightly menacing" through humor, photography and artistic styling. I love the whole process. I've even made a few Zombies.

In 2010 I started designing jewelry and called it Steeling Pompeii. Steeling Pompeii is a unique handmade line of wire crafted jewelry. It is named after the material in which it was originally conceived; galvanized steel. I style and photograph my own designs on live models when possible and do layout advertising when needed.

Last year I had my first fashion show covered by The Easy Reader. This year my jewelry submission was included in an international juried show with 350 other artists. "Wearable Expressions" is a multimedia inventive textile and art fashion exhibition. My fashion photograph of the accepted jewelry piece is included in the event catalog.

I currently volunteer as photographer for SPAA and SPVC events, create montage music videos of these events and update their social media sites. (I am webmaster for this site).
