In The News

We all like to have our work noticed.

Here you will find a (growing) collection of articles, write-ups, and on occasion, a featured quote or two where I happen to show up. Believe me, it was an internal controversial struggle as to whether or not to create a Press page. I am not one to be spouting off shameless plugs (though in some cases, these do work!), so I am grateful for all the press I receive.

I have included two ways to view. Either go directly to the news article page via the button link or download a pdf of the article. Page links often move, get archived or purged, so a pdf file is a nice backup.

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 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 she finds in native wild spaces and its inhabitants who call these spaces home. Kristin sees all living creatures as kin and is always kind to spiders.

Be Kind to Everything That Lives.
