How to Find Us






After studying illustration and painting at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Kristin worked as a commercial artist. During that period she produced hundreds of greeting card and stationary designs in watercolor. Working for several years as an illustrator formed a good basis for branching out to more creative artistic expression.  


Initially, Kristin’s medium of choice was transparent watercolor. She was able to translate her love of light and color with its natural luminosity. She has since expanded her media using both the opaque watercolor gouache and acrylic. This allowed her to paint larger and bolder.


Kristin’s subject matter began to transition from natural landscapes to architectural themes and interior spaces. Their geometric lines provided a perfect template to render patterns of light and color in a more abstract way. Integrating representational and abstract concepts has expanded the possibilities of unique, personal interpretation by the viewer. In this way her intent and perspective does not limit the reality of what others see.

As an artist, Kristin is interested in exploring. She is always looking for a new way to interpret what she sees with color, point of view, or focal point. She understands that people have different ways of seeing and communicating.


Last year, Kristin achieved Signature membership in the National Watercolor Society, the New England Watercolor Society and the Rhode Island Watercolor Society. In addition, she is also an artist member of the Copley Society of Art and the Cambridge Art Association. She has received numerous awards including top honors in the 2014/2015 International Exhibit of the National Watercolor Society. This painting is currently in the traveling show touring the United States. She had the particular honor of being accepted into the American Watercolor Society show in 2013 and having her painting exhibited at the prestigious Salmagundi Club in NYC in its annual AWS show.
