About the Artist

Kristin Paulson is a Minneapolis based visual artist. After receiving her BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Minnesota in 2019, she chose to reconnect with oil painting through creating vibrant landscapes. In September 2023, she attended Chateau Orquevaux as an artist in residence. While tucked away in the champagne region of France, Kristin looked inward and discovered a voice and style unique to her artistic expression.

Kristin combines dream-like compositions with words to create a visual representation of thoughts and memories. The text in her paintings are gathered from journal entries and bloom into stories as she transcribes them onto canvas. Her pieces serve as maps, guiding the viewer through topics surrounding childhood and ones relationship to themselves.
