No Showings at the Moment

I’m busy working on a few new series, experimenting with new medium and techniques, as well as on my new online print shop! I will be sharing new exhibits soon. Looking forward to live exhibit openings and artists’ receptions so I can meet all you art lovers in person.

In the meantime, check out my latest work.

Terra Kind Studio showcases the creative work of visual artist and designer Kristin Maija Peterson. Growing up among prairies, lakes, rivers, and oak savannas along with her project work with environmental nonprofit organizations have collectively influenced her creative path. Kristin works in watercolor, graphite, color pencil, oil pastels and pen and ink, interpreting in detail the beautiful chaos within native wild spaces and its inhabitants found living there. She sees all living creatures as kin and is always kind to spiders.
