Kirstie Van Dyke Conklin

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

As an alumnus of Kendall College of Art & Design, class of 1996, I've since made my way from the land of illustration to design and marketing. It seemed a natural progression for my career, as design and sales were (in one shape or form) my "bread and butter" for so long. I have a passion for oil painting, mixed media, graphite, and pen and ink work. I've taken my work from finely rendered to impressionistic - to now "couch art" for friends and family. As a mother of two young children, my studio calls to me. I have three easels set up for when my girls will be old enough to experience art with me again. In the meantime, I make my living as a Marketing Manager for a local company who owns and replicates a number of unique private schools across the country. It is my hope to "infuse" some of my illustration background into the brands I'm currently working with, and inspire others to find their own creativity.
