Hi! I’m Kirsten “K.R.” Sexton, an illustrator + designer currently residing in the Orange County, CA but originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, CA. I have a serious, contagious passion for all things design: Illustration, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Fashion, Photography, Video, EVERYTHING. I try to jump at every opportunity that allows me to follow these passions. My favorite methods to create are with pen & ink, Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator, clay, and video.
I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a B.F.A. degree in Illustration; during those years you could have found me roaming around the art department or planning and leading events for the Pencil Mileage Club (Animation/Illustration club). After graduating from college, I opened my own online art shop which has become one of my proudest accomplishments. My artwork has sold in over 40 states in America, as well as Canada, Australia, Germany, Italy, Chile, Ireland, Croatia, and Portugal, as well as others. Besides creating artwork, I also host live art streams explaining my artistic process, make videos sharing my knowledge about being an Etsy seller, all while continuing to enhance my design abilities.
Some of my other interests:
Thrift shops. Watching films with quirky interior design and clothing. Watching films in general. The tiny house movement. Having a clean desk. My boyfriend Chris and our perfectly-compatible weirdness. Our black cat “Seelie” who is equally as weird. Vintage items. Trips to the library. Living a vegetarian lifestyle. All things Disney. The Harry Potter series. Buying pens I don’t need. Nancy Drew computer games (lover since childhood). Being surrounded by creatives.
A passionately curious person, I am constantly finding new interests to fall in love with, even if just for a short period of time. I will dwell on these little infatuations in the Blog section, so be sure to check back periodically!
