Kristen AR Larkin
Simply said I am a creative soul. Not technically an artist by education or trade. But I grew up surrounded by crafting and have always been drawn to it. I have done everything from scrapbooking to sponge painting my kitchen (this while on maternity leave with my first born). I am lucky to have an extremely supportive husband, 2 teens and a toddler and a tribe of woman who I am fiercely loyal to.
As I approach a significant age in my life, half of which was committed to corporate America, I am so over the manspreading commuters and the daily grind into NYC and excited to start the next chapter after my career in Finance (yes...Finance!).
I am proud to say that I am now a full-fledged Mompreneur with a strong focus on Philanthropy. Giving back is like breathing for me and it makes me feel amazing setting that tone for my family.
Whether a social gathering or corporate event, a portion of the proceeds is always directed to a cause and it is the perfect intersection of what I need and what I love
Painting glasses is my peace. With every event I run the more I see the positive impact on people. Some dive right in while others hesitate and question their skills, but in the end everyone leaves with a sense of pride, happiness and seriously cool pieces of functional art.
