Keri Newton lives in upstate South Carolina with her family and ugly bulldog named Oxford (affectionately nicknamed Poopah). She has been drawing since childhood, pulling inspiration early on from the bizarre works of Tim Burton and Edward Gorey, as well as the sensual aesthetics of Alphonse Mucha.

Keri graduated from Davidson Fine Arts Magnet school in Augusta, Georgia. Since then she has formed her own jewelry company, Omnia Studios, LLC, and is currently enjoying designing jewelry, creating art, and living in Greenville, South Carolina.
