Meet the Artists

 

J.K Dreamer portrait

JK.Dreamer

JK.Dreamer is an anonymous artist living and working somewhere in the wild mountains of Utah.  With his handcrafted creations, he aims to capture the beauty of nature.  Whether he is depicting vast landscapes or creating figures of tiny animals, his work contains the charm and authenticity that can only come when an artist is truly devoted to his craft.

Before taking on his alias, JK.Dreamer spent his youth pursuing a career in 3D animation, hoping to work on big budget movies.  He spent his formative years building the foundation of his artistry and spent the first two years of his college career pursuing an art degree.  Soon however, life got in the way.  Upon learning of the impending birth of his first child, he decided to do the responsible thing and switch his degree to finance, eventually landing a run-of-the-mill job in a corporate office.

For a while, he was happy, or so he thought. But a steady salary and job security weren’t enough to make up for the loss of his artistic ambitions.  During endless hours spent staring into his computer, he began dreaming about returning to the life of an artist.  With one child already born and another one on the way, he knew it wouldn’t be easy.  It wasn’t the most practical decision, but with thoughts of philosophy, nature, animals, and art circling his mind, he knew he had to take the plunge.

Inspired by his lifelong love of wildlife, JK.Dreamer launched Camp Hollow - an artistic collection specializing in porcelain animal jewelry and figurines.  Not only were these charming little creations were an overnight hit, but they allowed the artist and his collaborators to begin pursuing their creations full time.  Since then, he has branched off into several different mediums, expanding his empire and spreading his love of nature with an ever-growing collection of followers.

JK.Dreamer may not be a real name, but the feelings inspired by his art couldn’t be truer.  He has grown into an exceptionally interesting creator, constantly finding new ways to express the magic of nature.  JK.Dreamer is excited to take his career to new levels as he continues to explore new ways to use his artwork to inspire and uplift.
