Hello! I'm Kristen Laczi.
I'm a Long Island artist, Wife & fur Momma who is obsessed with beaches, puppies & healthy living.
I grew up in a small country town located outside of Buffalo NY, always hanging out with the boys, covered head to toe in dirt. My younger sister and I didn't have a lot of stuff but my parents always fueled our creativity with experiences and travel. In high school I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up, all I knew was that I loved creating art and being on the computer. I was encouraged to look into graphic design and sure enough fell in love. I graduated in 2009 with a B.F.A. in Communication design and shortly after was employed full time with a family owned real estate company.
Today I live in Long Island with my husband and our rescue pup Dax. We moved to the coast after my husband changed careers and it's been one of the best things to happen to us. We bought a cute little house that overlooks the bay and we're a quick 2 minute drive to the ocean. Most days you can find me working from home as a graphic designer for that same real estate company that hired me 8 years ago, and when I'm not behind the screen, I'm usually getting my hands covered in paint, cooking up healthy meals or digging my toes into the sand.
My husband and I are currently expecting a baby boy who is due on New Years Eve of this year! We are so excited for this next chapter in our lives and feel incredibly thankful for this little miracle. Other than pursuing a career in art, I've wanted nothing more than to be a great wife and mother.
About My Artwork
I've always been drawn to real life and experiences. Not every day is good, but I truly believe that everything that we go through molds us for future days. Recently my work has been inspired by our move to Long Island. I've been constantly finding beauty in the ocean, waves and wildlife.
My mission is to create artwork that brings you joy, relaxation & peace.
“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” ― Vincent van Gogh
