“I think we look for the differences in people because it makes us less lonely.” 
― Carson McCullers

Kristen paints what's around her: Her friends and family, flowers, sometimes just the fruit off her counter top. She tries to capture these things simply, in honest and ordinary moments, hoping that, seen in this natural way and with the heart, something of their power or beauty might stand out. Kristen learned to paint in her home state of Indiana, and does so now in her little studio in Portland, OR.
