My story

I'm an American artist living in Italy with my husband and two children. In 2017 I started working as an artist and commercial illustrator and since then I have had the pleasure of creating art for clients around the world, including Monocle Magazine, the city of Ancona, Toyota Canada, Bloomberg Philanthropies and others.

My work is characterized by simplification, a limited color palette and a warm summer atmosphere. I make gouache paintings, oil pastel drawings and digitally-painted art prints. You can find me on Instagram @kristenboydstun.
