GET TO KNOW KRISTEN GIORGI
Q: WHAT IS YOUR FIRST MEMORY OF CREATING ART OR BEING AN ARTIST?
A: I remember sitting in my room at a very young age just doodling for hours on my floor. I would get lost in it drawing shapes and coloring them in creating different compositions. I remember falling into that artist, “trance-like” state very young. Almost like a meditation.
Q: WHAT DOES WOMEN EMPOWERMENT MEAN TO YOU?
A: It's about celebrating one another’s talents and achievements. Encouraging each other and finding inspiration through our stories of struggles and successes.
Q: WHO ARE THREE ARTISTS THAT HAVE IMPACTED YOUR CREATIVITY?
A: Number one would be my sister, Laura. She started drawing and painting at a very early age. I would watch and copy her when I was little. I wanted to do everything she was doing and she always created so meticulously and gracefully. Much of my inspiration is drawn from artists from the late sixties - Helen Frankenthaler and Morris Louis are two of my favorites.
