About the Artist

it's a cup of paint by Kristin Alford

I come from a creative family. My mom can quilt magnificent art from scraps of fabric, my sister can cook just about anything & her holiday cookies are second to none, my dad could turn an ordinary piece of wood into something spectacular, and me... well, let's just say I have spent a great deal of time looking for my creative outlet. 

After years of failing at nearly every hobby I tried (oh did I fail), I finally found my heart, soul, and passion, in abstract fluid acrylic painting.

Painting is relaxing, fun, messy, and it gives me an opportunity to creatively manage life’s challenges.  

In 2018, I mustered up the courage to start exhibiting/selling my work, mostly because painting had taken over every inch of space in my apartment.  

I now participate in larger art events, teaching kids & adults pour art, and painting custom pieces for destinations throughout the country. 

My dad once said...

“Kid, no matter what, you should always have a passion. Be passionate about something – anything.”

I finally found my something. 
I paint to stay calm. I paint to be creative. I paint to make people happy.
I paint because it's my passion!
