Kristin Kwan is an artist who makes illustrative paintings and drawings. Her work uses elements of fantasy and allegory to explore themes of life, death, and rebirth. She lives with her husband, daughter, and crowd of pets in Lincoln, NE.
When Kristin was growing up her family moved many times, and every new home held mysteries and secrets. She dreamed of hidden stairways that led to unknown attics, or cellars underneath that held forgotten treasures. That low door is still elusive, but when she picks up her pencil or paint brush she can find it for a little while. When she paints she tries to bring some of that magic country back with her.
Vanessa Gillings, a children’s author and illustrator inspired by nature, paints animals and images from fairytale settings, and quiet, everyday scenes. Working entirely in gouache, using a layering technique she developed and teaches in her skillshare class, her illustrations have been featured in coloring apps, children’s clothing companies, and galleries across the country. She currently lives in Washington, DC.
