Kristen is an artist living in Norfolk, VA. She is happiest with a cup of coffee in one hand and a paintbrush in the other. A sucker for a sweet sunrise and an unexpected adventure, Kristen's latest inspirations include mermaids, dream catchers, and all things nautical.

Knowing the color wheel can really make a difference in your art work. By using colors that are next to each other on the color wheel you are able to create a mood for your piece. When you use opposite colors (also known as complimentary colors) on the color wheel, you are able to really make things "pop." Also, knowing what colors we can mix to make new colors can be very helpful.
There's nothing more happy than a brightly colored picture. It's true, colors are just happy.
When in doubt, wear red.-Bill Blas
There's just something nostalgic about classic pin-up girl art. Maybe the fact that it's reminiscent of "the simple days gone by" is what keeps our attention, or maybe it's the art of revealing just enough to keep viewers interested. I love them because of the fashion. I also love the hairdos and the bright red lipstick.
Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.
