Kristina has been drawing pictures since she could hold a crayon. When she was old enough to have those funny little coloring books where you would dip a pen in water and then put it on the pictures to "magically" reveal the colors, she would rather create her own picture stories on the back, blank pages than color the pictures already there. Growing up, nearly every page of her notebooks in school had a doodle on them or even a little story spreading over multiple pages, often getting her in trouble with teachers. Although, she initially moved to New York City to study Theatre, she soon realized she preferred the visual arts and returned to her first love. Kristina graduated with honors from School of Visual Arts' Illustration BFA program and is now an award winning illustrator and fine artist. Upon moving to Boston, she discovered a new love in sharing her enthusiasm for art and teaches a variety of college courses in addition to a full time art career and Paint Nite. She loves how Paint Nite can reconnect adults to the creative spirit we all had as children. She does not believe in talent, but believes everyone has the potential to create with passion and practice
