Kristin Parsons' Profile

About

I'm Kris, artist and illustrator, wife, mom, mother-in-law, and best of all a grandmother. I've been drawing all my life. Since art school in Europe fifty years ago, I've illustrated books, worked in an animated cartoon studio (pre-CGI), and exhibited in group and solo shows.

After my grandson was born in 2006, I created some art for his nursery and had so much fun doing it, I ended up with dozens of prints and a lot of ideas for new ones. What I didn't have was a plan to sell them, but in 2010, my daughter (mother of grandson) discovered Etsy. "Do that, Mom!" she said, so of course I did.

Recently, after six years of selling art for kids, I decided to diversify my shop by adding my "grown-up" surreal and abstract art prints. I love making them as much as I've loved making children's art, so take a look!
