Larry Moss, Airigamist, Founder and Creative Director

Kelly Cheatle, Artist and Designer

Kelly Cheatle loves creating in any medium. She received her Design degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a minor in Illustration and a major interest in every studio elective she could find. Her diverse know edge of traditional materials and image-making techniques has given her an appreciation for texture and dimensionality, even in digital formats. When given an opportunity to work with balloons during Balloon Manor 2006, she was excited about a new medium for creating artwork. Now, as a partner in Airigami, her design sense and illustration background have helped to take it in new directions, including designing fashions that have appeared on runways in Rochester, NYC and Las Vegas.
