Krista has always studied and worked in various art based fields, starting in high school with photography. She was awarded a merit based full college scholarship with her photographic works and presentations. She mastered both negative and print retouching and went on to win several awards for her nature photography.
A resident of this area for 25 years, Krista traveled bi-monthly to Louisville, Kentucky for 5 years to teach the decorative arts at The Faux Finish School, one of the most renowned faux finish schools in the country, using Faux Effects® cutting edge line of proprietary products before opening her own training facility in 2010 here on the Emerald Coast. In addition to teaching at her studio, she has traveled the country and taught many decorative painting classes at other art studios and at the International Decorative Artisans League convention through the years. She has taught hundreds of students over the last 12 years and many have gone on to become instructors and/or studio owners as well.
Her skill and distinctive style of decorative painting has made her a much sought after artist, as well as teacher.
