Bio: Born in 2000, Kristin Hess is an illustrator and fine artist based on Long Island. She is currently a student at Stony Brook University majoring in Studio Art with a concentration in Drawing/Painting/Printmaking and a minor in Marine Sciences. This has given her the opportunity to create works in numerous types of mediums and styles, but her preferred medium is pen and ink. Many of her pieces are inspired by her love of the water and the environment.
“I can attribute my art style to my sophomore year of high school reading The Little Prince. While many of my pieces are based on real locations and animals, the book has taught me that imagination is one of the strongest human abilities that we can’t afford to lose. I use art as an outlet to express my imagination and portray everyday life in the form of a story with a twist.”
