Kristle finds inspiration in nature and the unexpected - from fashion to the outdoors, but especially in her social surroundings, in North Carolina and from growing up in Texas. She loves vibrant color and also practices painting daily.
Kristle was trained in fine arts and graduated from Texas Tech University. In high school, she won a national award for a portrait of a little boy looking up at a yellow ribbon on a tree (post 9/11) and the painting was hung in the Congress building. It was around this time that she fell in love with depicting emotions through her art and sharing her work.
Kristle’s studio is located in Kannapolis, North Carolina and is open by appointment. She has been painting full-time since 2017. Her work has been shown at Slate Interiors, Sozo Gallery, Buckhead Art and Company (Atlanta, Georgia), and Shain Gallery (Charlotte, NC).
Her work can be seen in person, by appointment. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a showing.
