Kris' Profile

About

I believe my urge to be creative and think outside the box was passed down to me through at least a couple of generations. My grandma and mom are both wonderful artists and my great-grandfather, grandfather and dad could all build and/or fix anything that needed to be.

As a kid, you could usually find me in the house doing some art project, making clothes for my Barbies out of scraps of material from my mom or out in the garage building something for my Barbies.

As I grew up, I experimented with all types of media and have found solace in anything creative. When I had a bad day at work, you could find me in front of an easel, with some sort of craft in my lap or in the basement building things to take my mind off of the trivialities of life.

Eventually, I ended up in a masters design-oriented Architecture program at the University of Florida; and while I was there, threw in a graduate Construction degree to ensure that I could be hands on from conception to finish of any projects I worked on.

These days, much of my inspiration for projects comes from life going on around me. With lots of my family and friends getting married, starting families and, of course, having birthdays, I am always trying to find personal gifts for everyone...which leads me to new items for my Etsy shop. I always hope that others shopping on Etsy can connect with one of my projects so that I can create more! I can’t walk through the hardware store without thinking of the things that I could create with all the treasures that line the shelves of the store.

Thanks for looking around my shop! I hope you enjoyed your visit!
