KRISTIN WOLFSON is a classically trained
New Orleans-based visual artist. Her modern approach to the figure and creative use of color evoke a whimsical sense of femininity with a touch of dark undertones. Wolfson’s multi-dimensional works are often a combination of painting and drawing including acrylic, oil, pastel, gold leaf and graphite. Her work is best described as a melding of contemporary abstract with detailed elements of classical realism. Some of her inspirations include Mucha, Egon Schiele, and the 19th century Dutch master painters. Even in her commissioned work, Wolfson maintains her sensible approach to reveal the emotion and spirit of the subject.
A graduate of Tulane University with a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts, Kristin Wolfson received additional training at the Rhode Island School of Design, New Orleans Academy of Fine Art, and the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. After landing her dream job in early 2007 at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia in New York City, Wolfson was the Executive Assistant to the Chief Creative Officer Gael Towey and Martha Stewart. In 2008 Wolfson was brought to Los Angeles, where she was an assistant fashion designer for Ed Hardy, Christian Audigier, and SMET in the outerwear and knits division. Being mentored by such an influential figure to the art world as Martha Stewart and a position in the fashion industry drove Wolfson to launch an art business of her own.
