Kristin Solecki Illustration
What do you make and how did you get your start?
I make traditional mixed media art, everything from silk screens, wood blocks, paintings and drawings. Since I work in such a varied media I am able to apply my artwork to a variety of products including apparel, prints, and fine art. I got started selling my work and finding new avenues for my work in college. I didn't want to just make paintings or just make clothes, I wanted to speak to as many audiences as possible with as many forms of the craft as I could and this seemed perfect!
What are you bringing to Crafty Balboa Holiday?
I am bringing original silk screens, hand printed baby apparel, and small woodenornaments each with an original painting on them. I think it is important to give a gift with meaning and something that is unique, that no one else will have! Price range for all my work $3-$50.
What's the best present you have ever received?
My mom gave me a small caroler from when she was little. I still look forward to getting it out every year!
All I want for Christmas is...
To see my family and friends over the holidays!
