About

How it started

When my youngest brother and his wife went in for the 20 week ultrasound of their first baby everything changed in our family. They found out that he had a heart condition called Corrective Transposition of the Greater Arteries which basically means that his heart is backwards. His birth was scary and he spent several weeks in Sick Kids.

In October 2013 he had a very risky surgery called the Double Switch where the surgeons rebuilt his heart.

Because of his condition I've had the opportunity to meet several other cardiac babies and kids who have spent most of their lives in the hospital. They inspire me and make me want to do something to help or at least encourage them and that is how my first couple of pieces came about.

I would love the opportunity to help you celebrate the sick child in your life. CHD children and also all other children who have overcome such huge obstacles or are still fighting their way through them.

A portion on all sales go to medical help for CDH kids in 3rd world countries.

You can check out my blog to read more about my family and my dear nephew.

    My name is Kristina. I have loved art for as long as I can remember. I am a photographer but love to make art without a camera as well. I teach art to young kids and the day isn't full unless I've created something.
