Welcome

This site is a small portfolio of work I've made for myself and for clients.

My instagram is currently acting as more of personal blog ( @lennygilmore ).

When I'm not working I go back country camping, play roller derby, repair my motorcycle, and explore everywhere I can. My goal for 2018 is to get in marathon shape, climb Mt. St. Helens, and find new enriching way of creative expression.

A little more About me

I'm an award winning creative, photographer, artist & designer. 

I come from a midwest irish/jewish/german family that loves science fiction, black humor & thai food. 

I support the equality of all people & the respectful treatment of our planet. 

I became a visual artist because I'm utterly tone deaf. My first choice would have been to be a bassist in a 90s indie rock band.

I have a cat named Yuri, after the first man in space.
