This week I am happy to introduce you to Kristiana Parn.
Kristiana's work has been flying out of fawn since we opened.
I found that I had an immediate connection with the characters in her paintings.
Something about her whimsical style just makes me happy.
The originals are acrylic painted on wood and you can pick up as many prints as your heart desires!
Kristiana Pärn is an artist in New York City. Born in Estonia, at the age of seventeen she launched her art career, studying with Estonian painter Marje Berlokko.
Shortly after graduation, Kristiana moved to New York City to study animation at The School of Visual Arts.
Since 2005, she has focused exclusively on illustration work, starting out as a textile designer for various Manhattan studios. Recently, Kristiana established her own studio in Brooklyn where she creates original work for clients in the New York area and exhibits her paintings and drawings at local galleries.
