Kristina didn't want to be an artist when she was little. She wanted to be a teacher. She had no idea you had to get good at something to teach it! She graduated with a B.A. in English Literature, but her love for art led her from a career in marketing to graphic design, then to photography, and finally, illustration. Most days you can find Kristina painting digitally on her iPadPro, but occasionally she's in her studio losing herself in watercolors. She loves texture and retro design and is inspired by her two sweet, rambunctious boys. She lives just outside of NYC with her family in New Jersey.
