One World One Heart 2011

Welcome to my blog!  I am so excited to be participating in the One World One Heart Blog Hop created by Lisa Swifka.

Please allow me to introduce myself:

My name is Kristin and I live in Western New York with my husband, son and 2 crazy cats (Mona & Lisa).

I spend quite a bit of time playing in my sketchbook...

And I'm always up for a challenge!

I recently completed my moleskine for The Sketchbook Project:

I love to experiment with many different types of art (even edible).  But if I had to choose, my favorite medium is paint.  Which leads me to...

The Giveaway!

"Tribute (One World One Heart)"   10 1/2 x 11   acrylic on wood

One lucky winner will receive this original painting that I created just for this event!

Three additional winners will each receive 1 mini print mounted on a 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 canvas displayed on a mini easel!

This giveaway is open to all active bloggers worldwide!  If you are a blogger and would like to enter:
  • Leave a comment on this post
  • Make sure I have a way to contact you if you win
  • You have until the end of February 17th to enter
  • Winners will be chosen from a random draw and announced on February 18th (I will also email all winners)
I look forward to 'meeting' you too...
I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you visit again soon!

The winners have been chosen!
(Check out the announcement)


  1. Hi Kristin, what a great giveaway. Count me in as I LOVE your work. Kyles =D

  2. I love these OWOH entries and I would like to do one as well. Your artwork never ceases to amaze me and you can truly tell that you have your own style of art going on. The piece you created for OWOH actually reminds me of something Paul Klee'would have done, so beautiful and truly is LOOOOVE!

  3. Kristin, what a great way for me to see more of your art that must have been posted before I found you! I love your style and getting to see more of your work is so much fun!
