It is with these works that she hopes to convey that it is the ideas communicated in our art that foster change that must remain. Alongside this practice , Kristin has worked in the non-profit and public sectors as a board member, volunteer librarian, art therapy leader, gallery owner and manager. She opened Under the Tree Art Gallery in 2020 to give local artists a venue to showcase their work during the COVID-19 pandemic and to help engage the community with art and the environment.
