Kristen grew up on a mountain in Vermont with two Artists for parents- and got started early working with fabric, wood and natural materials. As a kid she spent a lot of time at Craft Shows making friendship bracelets and sewing a million stuffed cats with embroidered faces. As an adult she has moved on to silk screening, jewelry making, book and paper arts, painted stones, recycled craft and illustration. In 2008 Kristen graduated from Academy of Art University in San Francisco with her BFA in Textile and Fashion Design. In 2011 she returned to Western Mass, back home and back to nature to keep on making art and spreading the love. Kristen lives in Lanesborough with her husband, three cats, one puppy, 40+ chickens and 20K honey bees at Olsen Farm.
