Getting to know...Local by Kristin
Local by Kristin is another line from a talented Winnipeg artist/designer. Can't beat that Winnipeg connection!
Originally from Whitby Ontario, Kristin is a graduate of the Emily Carr Institute in Vancouver and has recently moved to Winnipeg to be a part of its friendly artscommunity.
Reasons why SHE LOVES WINNIPEG...
for phone booths on every corner
for traffic lights on bridges
for frozen eyelashes
for cheap housing
for help out of snowbanks
for small airports
for warm buses
for real thrift stores
for seven digit phone numbers
Some of Kristins recent interests include drag kings, painting and finding out why we all love
Tim Hortons so much.
As I write this, Kristins designs are flying from Winnipeg to Montreal with the ever helpful Roy Liang of Dumb Chauffeur, can't wait to see them in person!!
