Kristen grew up in the PNW, and more specifically the Wenatchee Valley, calling Leavenworth, Washington her home. Kristen has always lived in the mountains and is always outside and in nature.
Teaching herself how to paint with no formal training, she learned how to translate all the emotion, feelings and magical beauty of her favorite landscapes into her paintings.
“I paint what I see and feel. I believe that if we surround ourselves with good people and soak our eyes with beautiful paintings, it all begins to become a part of our lives. When I’m outside, I find inspiration and translate it into paintings and hope that you can find inspiration and magic in the mountains too.”
