About

Blessing Others through Art

I've always loved art. Both of my parents were professors of art at a local university in the town I grew up in (Clinton, Mississippi). Many people would say my siblings and I inherited their talent, which in some sense may be true...BUT I also think years and years of practice and experience helped nurture in me a love and passion for art that is beyond genes. :)

I studied Art in college (and had my parents as art professors! I'm so glad they encouraged me to pursue art), and finished my Bachelors in Fine Arts in 2009, and then went on to get my Masters in Fine Arts in 2010. (It was crazy finishing my Masters in one year, but I'm so grateful God gave me the grace to do it!)

I went overseas to do missions for 2 years after graduating, and in that time met my now husband. When we got engaged, I was between jobs and lots of life transition. My sister actually suggested I start an Etsy shop to help make extra to pay for my wedding. Since then, God has blessed me tremendously with more and more opportunities to grow my Etsy shop, and I'm loving getting to use the gifts He gave me to hopefully bless others!

Lately my main selling item has been my custom watercolor portraits of wedding days! Since I love painting people, and I love watercolor, these paintings have made great first anniversary traditional paper gifts! It's such a special honor to paint such beautiful moments for others of their wedding day!

That being said, I am happy to reproduce any family or wedding photo in the style you can see in my listed paintings. Just contact me for more information through an Etsy convo, or email me at kristin.vanlieshout [!at] gmail.com

Thanks for reading, and may God bless you!
