About Kristin

Hi, there! I'm Kristin, and I run the Treehouse Illustrator Shop. Let me tell you: I LOVE IT!!! I am a full-time stay-at-home mommy/artist. When you buy from me, you make a difference! :) I graduated from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in Art Studio, and a minor in Art History. I've been published in magazines and books, have participated in the Sketchbook Project for 2011, and painted a 40' section of the Alley Art Mural in Berwick, PA. I am always up for an adventure when it comes to helping someone illustrate their written works. Please contact me!
