About Kristen

Kristen Fagan is the artist behind Creative Stash, an art and design business. She was born and raised on Long Island in New York. An enriching art program in school opened my heart to visual art. She graduated with a B.A. in Visual Communication and have been working as a graphic designer since 2000. 

She is a trained Art Masterpiece Guide for the Mesa Public Schools Art Masterpiece Program. Art Masterpiece is an art appreciation program offered to elementary children by parent volunteers. As a guide I lead 30 minute discussions about famous paintings. The goal is to help students look, think and talk about great masterpieces of art.

When not creating,  she enjoys spending time with loved ones, yoga, road trips and exploring the outdoors, finding delight in the natural world, fits of laughter, dancing and music. Kristen loves to learn and am an avid reader. Her early experiences and the joy she received creating and sharing her artwork lead her to seek an artistic career.

About Creative Stash
Creative Stash is where her design, painting and crafting worlds collide. She began working as a graphic artist in 2000 and have since helped small businesses with their graphic and web design needs.  In addition to design, Kristen loves to create and Creative Stash on Etsy is a place for her to have fun, explore creativity and make unique handmade gifts with an eco flair, paintings and jewelry. She hopes to someday support her family with her design, paintings and handmade creations.

HERE on her blog, she writes about art, design, works in progress, handmade goods, recipes and life.
