A Colorado native, Kristina studied art at the University of Colorado, Boulder, graduating with a BA in Sociology. She went on to study art in the MFA program at San Diego State before eventually opting to focus on earning her education degree and K-12 teaching certificate, pursuing a career in education. She earned her Master of Education degree in Integrating Teaching Through the Arts from Lesley University, which combined her two passions, art and education. Working as an educator for 25 years in the Cherry Creek School District, Kristina brought art into her classroom daily, as she firmly believes that teaching through the arts deepens understanding and connections. For the past four years, Kristina has been actively painting and collaborating with artists and instructors at the Art Students League of Denver and Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass, Colorado. She is now a painting full time and has a studio in the RiNo Arts District at GRACe Studios.
