“Don't think about making art, just get it done.
Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it.
While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol
Who Are You?
Hi there, I'm Kristen. I'm a self-taught artist. I create heartfelt art that is a mix of styles. If you ask me what type of art I make, I'd call it modern folk pop art. I like to use bright colors and my work typically includes typography and positive messaging.
I started painting in 2012 on a whim when I was looking for a piece of art with a particular message but couldn't find it. I decided I'd make it myself.
My favorite canvas is wood and I usually paint with 1-shot enamel, but occasionally I use acrylic paint or spray paint as well.
Hands, hearts & eyes are recurring themes in my work. I'm heavily influenced by traditional sign painting and folk art. Two of my favorite artists are Margaret Kilgallen and Howard Finster.
