About Me

 

Hello, I’m Kristen Holland. I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As a young girl I was always fascinated by the beauty of nature and the mysteries it holds. I spent weekends on my Grandmothers farm taking long walks, and soaking up the grand spaces of northern Minnesota. At age 15 circumstances moved me to a small community in the heart of Interior Alaska. Since the day I set foot in this beautiful state, I have been continually in awe and amazed at it’s grandeur and vastness.
The majestic mountains, valleys, rivers, and the animals that live here have been the inspiration for much of my artwork. I first started wood-burning about 10 years ago. A craftsman is only as good as their tools, however, and I have my husband to thank for purchasing a Colwood professional pyrography tool. Now I have the ability to relate to others my love for this amazing place through my artwork. I hope you find something on my page that pleases your inner artist and sparks a bit of adventure in your soul!
