Featured Artist: Kristin Forbes-Mullane

First, I apologize for the lack of posts... I've been quite busy. Anyway, this featured artist was worth the wait!

Meet Kristin Forbes-Mullane. "I’m known as a few other things, but I’ll probably just keep those to myself." Kristin is from Phoenix, Arizona, where "its about to be 120 degrees. Now is about the time I ask myself why I still live here."

Kristin's love or art came from her father, an artist and graphic designer. She's been painting and drawing since she was a child, but "really started to get serious about it around 10 years ago when my husband and I bought a house and I finally had some space to work in."

"These days I'm all about taking beautiful, peaceful images and making them dark. I especially like using religious icons and old portraits as subject matter. If its weird, I probably like it." She finds her inspiration everywhere, "but I find a lot of it on the internet. I could spend hours looking at photos of cathedrals and the statues in and around them. I also love searching through all the old photos groups on Flickr." Her favorite medium is acrylic paints.

Kristin sells her art online at her website and on Etsy.

Kristin, like myself, says, "I really hate it when people leave doors, drawers and cupboards open." Maybe it's a creative-type thing?
