Kristen Molder

As a child, Kristen knew she would be an artist and art teacher. Her first trip to college, though, earned her a B.S. in Advertising. Later down the road, she found her way back to her passion and went back to school at the University of Texas at Austin for her art degree and teacher certification.

Though she devotes most of her time to inspiring the next generation of creative souls, she paints often in her studio, with her faithful fuzzy helper, Jellybean. She currently teaches junior high art in a suburb of Houston.
You can find Kristen at Purple Lizard Studio.
