Kristin Makarius About Me


It’s nice to meet you! My name is Kristin Makarius, and my story starts out quite predictably, with a crayon, way back when I hardly remember much at all, other than the irresistible desire to draw. As a child, I was an avid listener of stories and loved making up adventures of my own. I could stay happily curled up in my closet playing make-believe for hours on end… often with the family cat standing in as a knight in cardboard armor and a large crowd of stuffed animals watching on.

Years later I can still be found scribbling down characters, dreaming up the stories they might embark on — all with a cat (or three) perched close by.

I work primarily in watercolor, but enjoy using other mediums as well.

I hope you enjoy my little corner of the world!
