Kristina has always been involved in creating art, from doodling as a kid, to majoring in Animation/Illustration in college. After graduation she began working for Kabam, a mobile gaming studio. In 2016 she felt the need to live closer to the mountains and feed her love for outdoor recreation. So she packed her bags and moved to Washington state to focus on becoming a full time freelance illustrator. She would sketch mountains during hikes and draw trails after mountain bike rides. This led to her specializing in sport themed artwork with a strong emphasis in creating mountain bike illustrations. Her distinct style attracted opportunities from notable clients such as Shimano, Chris King, Ibis Cycles, IMBA, RaceFace and more. Her artwork takes the viewer on her trail explorations filled with energetic brush strokes of fern filled forests and large mountain landscapes captured in simple ink lines.
