plein air writer

Plein air is French for “open air” and was a popular art movement in the early nineteenth century. Artists would bring their paints, canvases and brushes to the great outdoors to create artwork from life. Much in the way that plein air artists produce paintings, Kristina plein air writes stories. She packs her bag with pencils, paper, and snacks and wanders into the wild for inspiration and creating. Summer 2017 she will be embarking on a forty-day plein air adventure.

environmental journalist

After receiving a graduate degree in environmental journalism, Kristina has been working on building a better alliance between the environment and society. She strives to incorporate diversity topics into all her writing, whether it’s environmental injustice or LGBTQ+ issues. Her work includes bison conservation and sustainable living. Kristina has also provided research for National Geographic Books.
