Hello! Kristin here, the voice behind Artifact. I started Artifact in 2013 and it has encountered a number of transitions. I’m a retired photographer, hence the random photography link with all my past work … I just couldn’t let it all disappear. Married to a handsome Frenchman/American since 2009, life has taken us down a number of paths filled with beauty and challenges alike, and we definitely don’t have it all figured out.
If you love beauty, it’s because beauty lives within you. If you love art, it’s because you are creative. If it wakes up your heart, a receptor for it already exists within you. Your soul is drawn to the things that will help you unfold your most glorious expression. Give in. – Cynthia Ocelli
I’ve said many-a-times that I have a restless soul. I’ve seen the same with many creatives … so thankfully, I’m not alone. Ask me what that means, and I won’t be able to define it. It comes through countless conversations and whole lot of patience within myself and others. So, this space is for my musings and a collection of memories I hold dear. It will probably include pretty photos, travel, life in Colorado, food, and some words here and there … sometimes light and sometimes heavy. It might not be poetic or make sense to every reader because, as humans, our experiences are different – and because of that, or perhaps in-spite of that, we can extend grace and love more fully. When it comes down to it … this is just my creative outlet while I pursue a different career path. Thanks for being here.
