Kristina is a visual artist and performer and is drawn to creative projects that will combine both of these passions. She has exhibited her sculpture in venues around the Midwest and Twin Cities and was a recipient of a Jerome Fiber Art Project Grant for 2010-2011 at the MN Textile Center. Her performance work includes: The Memory Box of the Sister's Fox and The Theater of the Tiny Clandestines with The Winding Sheet Outfit; Works In Progress My Life Is All But Over at the Red Eye Theatre; and 9 shows with Sandbox Theatre: including War with the Newts (2007 and 2015), This Is a World to Live In, 600 Years, In The Treetops, and as Project Lead for the performance/installation The Golden Record Project. She was also involved in remounts of Theater of the Tiny Clandestines with The Winding Sheet Outfit, which received a Knight Foundation Grant in 2015, and performance/installation for 2018 Art Shanties on Lake Harriet.
Kristina is a graduate of St. Catherine University with a MAED in Art and Theater Education, an ensemble member of Sandbox Theatre and a founding member of The Winding Sheet Outfit. Much of her fiber work is represented by Gilded Pear Gallery in Cedar Rapids, IA. When not creating visual art or devised theater, she also creates colorful jewelry and paper goods under the shop “Handmade by Kristina.”
