With an athletic background in disciplines including distance ocean paddling, surfing, kiteboarding and free diving, Kjell van Sice is both a representative of the ocean community and well-equipped for creating defining water and sports images both still and moving. At twenty-one years of age, the Hawaii-raised artist has editorial and advertisement work published in both domestic and international magazines and regularly collaborates with artists from a variety of mediums. His images and projects have also been affiliated with and shared by names such as the National Geographic Young Explorer's Grant, the Oceana conservation group and the Nikon Corporation. Although currently based in Pasadena, California where he majors in photography at the Art Center College of Design, Kjell also spends his time traveling to waters around the globe.
