Raised near the rolling shores of Chesapeake Bay, Kristin’s perspective was strongly shaped by the visual clash of industry and nature in and around the bustling American port town of Baltimore. Kristin has a family history in highly tactile expressions of creativity. Family influences in materials and craftsmanship helped fuel Kristin’s interest in arts. As a result of this interest, in addition to her fine arts work, Kristin obtained her Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design at Virginia Tech University.
She has shown her abstract paintings and ceramics consistently since 2011, both in the UK and the US. Kristin was one of one-hundred emerging artists to showcase at The Other Art Fair. Her works have also been published in British Vogue and The Washingtonian, and she’s had exhibitions in West Elm London and DC, Kit and Ace Georgetown, and most recently she was featured in One Kings Lane.
Kristin is an extensive traveler who has journeyed around the world polishing her eye and trademark ability to create visual textures with a rich, adventurous color palette and expressive techniques. Her geometric paintings display the idea of time as means of achieving a chimerical sense of control; at the same time, she pours upon intuition and trust in the senses with her reflective expressionistic paintings, as if letting go and confiding in her own rhythmic and balanced instincts. The palm tree paintings started from simple sketches done while traveling. Drawn to the tall structural plants, Kristin felt a sense of strength in their presence, and has continued to expand on her study adding palm tree paintings.
