Ken Sheldon cards

 

Ken Sheldon started at Hallmark nearly 20 years ago, after working as a creative intern in illustration. Being an artist can be challenging and is usually very busy. But for Ken, the work is enormously rewarding and enjoyable.

 

Hometown and school: I am from Massachusetts and attended the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida.

Inspiration: A sunlit window, wildflowers in a jar or in a field, dark tree trunks in a landscape of newly fallen snow. I am also inspired by anything well and thoughtfully made.

Themes I’m drawn to: The beauty and “serendipity” of nature and capturing and conveying feeling.

Best advice: Don’t try to emulate what others have done. Try to answer your own questions.

Happy place (when I’m being creative): I like to work wherever I can deliver the best results. Sometimes that is a quiet studio with no music. Sometimes it is outside, painting on-location. And occasionally, it’s a studio with a “busy” atmosphere and lots of energy.

Favorite card (so far): A Christmas boxed card I made a few years ago is my favorite. The card has a figure in the lower right, ice-skating through a pristine landscape. The finish is nice paper with several foils. The figure is embossed.

When I’m not working: I like to spend time outdoors—or anywhere—with my family. We also love to travel together, play games together and eat meals together. I love to ice-skate.
