Hey! I'm Kristine, a self taught artist, designer and seamstress in living in Chicago, IL. While the mediums I use to create my work varies, as a whole it reflects the inspiration I pull from my everyday life & the people in it. I use my attention to detail, color & texture and fondness for life’s otherwise mundane objects to bring these narratives & characters to life.
I've spent the better part of the past decade teaching myself skills ranging from acrylic & oil painting, upholstery & home decor, to couture wedding gowns and ready-to-wear garments. In 2016 I completed my first mural in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. Like most things I've taken on, I had never done one before, but I truly live for the challenges, opportunities, successes & failures that each new project brings on.
When I'm not working in my studio, you can find me eating my favorite beet burger and fries at Ground Control, hanging with my twin(and niece), in deep in a gif heavy family group text, making cool art with my top notch art crew, dancing in my living room, avoiding cilantro or running around parks with my doggo Emerson.
