On July 14, 2017, Kelly passed away from complications of her cancer. She will be missed. I was so incredibly honored to have had the chance to capture her like this, before chemo and other medicines.

She will be missed. May her spirit move and inspire you.


"YOU are a wild thing." - Kelly Clark

The moment I met Kelly Clark (aka UmberDove), I knew she would be the next subject for SoundandSEA.TV, a film series that highlights remarkable people in and around the Seattle metro area. She is a consummate artist. Painter. Silversmith. Sculptor. Poet. She's the kind of person who inspires passion, love, goodwill, and, of course, art. It is no wonder she has a dedicated and passionate "tribe" who love her. She's known for making limited or even unique runs of jewelry, bags, painted rocks, etc., that sell out within hours of her posting on her Etsy store. She has over 3500 passionate fans on her Facebook page who follow her every move and wait with baited breath for her next creation or blog post. She's a perfect example of the power of uniqueness.

If you are an artist or aspire to be, I have no doubt her words will move you.

You can join her "tribe" at or online at

Kelly is currently involved in a treatment protocol that involves several rounds of chemotherapy infusions. If you are inspired, we invite you to actively support her. Learn more:
