About Me
Hi, I'm Kristen Fagan, the artist behind Creative Stash, an art and design business. I was born and raised on Long Island in New York. An enriching art program in school opened my heart to visual art. I graduated with a B.A. in Visual Communication and have been working as a graphic designer since 2000.

I'm a trained Art Masterpiece Guide for the Mesa Public Schools Art Masterpiece Program. Art Masterpiece is an art appreciation program offered to elementary children by parent volunteers. As a guide I lead 30 minute discussions about famous paintings. The goal is to help students look, think and talk about great masterpieces of art.

I currently live in Mesa, Arizona with my husband and two sons. When I'm not creating I enjoy spending time with loved ones, yoga, road trips and exploring the outdoors. I find delight in the natural world, fits of laughter, dancing and music. I love to learn and am an avid reader. My early experiences and the joy I received creating and sharing my artwork lead me to seek an artistic career.

About Creative Stash
Creative Stash is where my design, painting and crafting worlds collide. I began working as a graphic artist in 2000 and have since helped small businesses with their graphic and web design needs.  In addition to design I love to create and Creative Stash on Etsy is a place for me to have fun, explore creativity and make unique handmade gifts with an eco flair, paintings and jewelry. I hope to someday support my family with my design, paintings and handmade creations.

Here on my blog, I want to share that joy with you. I write about art, design, works in progress, handmade goods, recipes and life.
