Profile

Kristin Makarius is an illustrator with a passion for storytelling and a love of the natural world. Since the very beginning, she has always had an enthusiasm for storytelling and deep love of drawing. As a child she could stay happily curled up in her closest playing make-believe for hours on end, often with the family cat standing in as a knight in cardboard armor and a large crowd of stuffed animals watching on. Years later she can still be found scribbling down characters and dreaming of the stories they might embark on—all with a cat (or three) perched close by. These days she works primarily with traditional mediums, using mainly watercolor or colored pencil. It is her hope that through her illustrations that she can share her love of stories, and that others may too find enjoyment in her little corner of the world.
