Kristina created her first illustrated story “Alice and the Path” using crayon on manila paper at the age of five and has been drawing ever since. Often described as magical and atmospheric, her work draws much of its imagery and inspiration from dreams, memories, and emotions.
Since graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, Kristina has exhibited work in numerous shows and has created award-winning illustrations for books, greeting cards, magazines, wine labels, CD covers, and theatre posters. She works out of her book, music, and plant-filled studio in Chicago.
