About Me

I am an unashamed lover of people and animals.

I love connecting with both of them.  I enjoy slowing down and savoring the moments, and my art reflects that. ('cause you definitely can't make this stuff quickly!!)

MY "ART HISTORY"

I grew up loving the visual arts and crafts in all of its forms, having the opportunity to explore various methods and media. I was blessed to be able to go to The Hartford Art School (University of Hartford, CT) and graduate with a BFA in Art Education and Painting.  After teaching for several years at the middle and high school level, I decided to pursue my professional art career (and parenting three boys) full time.

My media changed over 25 years-  painting, country crafts (yup!), children's clothing, mixed media jewelry, ink portraits, painted glassware, painted furniture, mixed media painted sculptures, dog coats/clothing..... Hence the name Melange, which was the prior name of my business.  Then my body wore out. I needed to take a sabbatical to find out what was going on. I rested, recovered, regained my health, and kept my hands busy with knitting and cross stitch.

6 years ago, I sensed it was time to start dabbling with my fine art again.  I took a little local class at the library on tangling, just for fun (like I had taken a library class on composting). It WAS fun, but way more than that.  It ignited something in me that felt like the culmination of my art exploration for the previous 30+ years. It combined my love for illuminated manuscripts and old etchings, realism and whimsy, patterns and design, biology and nature.   EUREKA!!  At age 50, I found what I had been searching for- a real direction for my work that was inspired, sustainable, and combined so many of my loves!  I've renamed my business to reflect this new direction (and because people didn't know that Melange meant mixture or combination- so it wasn't helpful to people to understand that I'm an artist- woops!)

HOW DOES MY LOVE FOR PEOPLE & ANIMALS PLAY OUT?

Because of my love for people, I endeavor to treat EVERYONE with respect and dignity.  We each have had a journey to get where we are in our lives.  That matters.  And we have more of a journey to travel.  I enjoy taking my mobile gallery to fine art shows around the country- mostly on the east coast and mid-Atlantic states at present. It gives me great joy to interact with people about my art, their love for animals, and their lives. I also currently support a child through Compassion International with the income from my sales.

Because of my love for animals, I spend a lot of time researching the anatomy, personality and habits of the animals I draw.  I spend as much time as possible with live animals, and contribute to various conservatory and protection organizations with the income from Kristin Moger "Seriously Fun Art".  I re-use, recycle, learn and conserve whenever I can. I use refurbished frames on all of my original drawings, and am known to reuse packing and mailing materials to ship things to you :-)

I look forward to your becoming a part of my story, through interactions, conversations and purchases of my art.

Wishing you Peace and Joy on the Journey-

Kristin

Description from Merchant:

Prints on Paper I print my open edition and limited edition prints with an Epson SureColor P600 printer, using Epson Ultrachrome HD Ink. This ink and technology create rich tones (using 8 different ink colors) and are proving to be quite lightfast and have great prospective longevity (more than 100 years). I use Red River Paper for their quality and incredible customer service. Their Aurora Art Natural fine art printing paper is 100% cotton rag and 18 mil thick., and archival. It has a lovely warm tone that sets off the black ink really nicely. Feel free to check out www.redrivercatalog.com for more specs and info . Fine Art Canvas Wrap Fine Art Canvas Gallery Wraps are printed directly onto canvas material. The print is then wrapped around an artist's stretcher frame, and finished with hanging hardware. Xpozer Print Xpozer prints are high quality prints on Vivid Satin material with a special aluminum and plastic interchangeable mounting/hanging system. They are lightweight, easily stored and shipped.
