Kristy’s love of painting started early: she would hide under the covers with a flashlight as a 6-year-old to make art. After years of practice, she has garnered accolades for her stationery creations for celebrities such as Katy Perry, and her designs for Bridal Guide magazine, The Greenbrier resort and Yellowstone National Park. Her work has also been featured on paper products for brands such as Anthropologie, Target and Papyrus. She has authored several painting books and loves teaching students of all levels.
