My name is Kristine A and I have been an artist since I was zygote. But, I have been a realistic portrait artist for almost 20 years.
Realistic portraiture is like a puzzle for me. Each piece presents an unique, problem solving dilemma that I really enjoy attacking and conquering.
I work primarily in markers, but have also done my share of graphite and acrylic portraits. In a past life, I was an illustrator who focused on pin-up style work. I have two very different styles.
Most of my current work is fanart because I like the subject matter and it makes me smile. There is nothing worse than drawing something you aren’t passionate about. No, thanks!
I am very enthusiastic and fervent about art and art learning. I have a life long love of education and I am constantly trying to improve myself and my craft through learning. I also am a strong believer that all humans are creative and artistic.
By day, I’m the resident data analyst, database wrangler & SQL geek at a professional theatre company. At night, when I am not drawing, I spend a lot of time watching films, obsessing over The Expanse (#murdersnuggles), being a science fangirl, playing video games, and volunteering my time at a couple local community theatres where I have fabricated props, produced, set designed and directed amateur productions – usually musical theatre.
I currently reside in Canada, I have an awesome dog named Ripley and Han Solo is my spirit animal.
