Kelvin Ordway was born in New Hampshire and spent the early part of his adult life working on a dairy farm in Vermont. This experience taught him how to build or fix almost anything. He served our country in the U.S. Navy and then gave 20 years to the National Guard. In addition, Kelvin continued his commitment to community by serving as a volunteer fireman. Some where along the way, Kelvin learned wood-turning and fell in love with this craft. He moved to Florida and became a member artist of Gallery 26. He stayed on as an Artisan member as the Gallery transitioned to Mossman. Kelvin volunteered to become a board member in 2019. Mossman is very grateful for his skills in maintaining our two vintage buildings and his dedication to Art Walk monthly set-ups.
