Featuring Artist Kristen Serio
Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Kristen Serio has always been passionate about drawing, painting, nature, and living a healthy lifestyle. She began art lessons at the age of 9 and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Louisiana in Lafayette in 2016. As part of a family passionate about the outdoors, many vacations taken as a young girl, and teenager provided a profound influence on her life. Hiking with a flower press made by her father, she collected flora for years on their annual trips. These experiences transferred into her work today as an artist, personal trainer and jewelry designer.
Since 2018, Kristen has displayed her artwork in several local markets. She continues to paint, but her artwork has expanded using pressed flowers and greenery from weddings, special events, and even the LSU Lakes. Experimenting with wood and resin, she creates unique gifts such as trays, wall hangings, and tables. Branching out even further, she now makes one-of-a-kind nature inspired jewelry incorporating pressed flowers, wood, and authentic butterflies from around the globe.
Kristen was featured in the April 2020 edition of “InRegister” magazine and then again in “InRegister@HOME”. She is a member of Midcity Makers Market and Southeast Farmers and Arts Market where she displays her creations throughout the year. A complete collection of her work can be viewed @Arte_di_Kristen on Instagram and @ArtediKristen on Facebook.
