Hello, my name is Kristin Morse. I am a contemporary acrylic artist living in Cascade, Wisconsin. I have 3 beautiful children, Jacob, Kelsey and Connor who amaze and inspire my every day. Our home rests in a wonderfully wooded area outside of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, an area that is forever providing me with new subject material!
I have grown up with art all around me ; be it in the macrame’ hangings knotted by my mom, or the wooden creations designed and built by my dad, but mostly, the paintings, by both. My sister is also a professional artist residing in Oregon. I am proud of the talent that l have been surrounded with through my life. I, like my family, am naturally ‘self-taught’ in the arts. My passion with painting began in 2008 when l came to love the acrylic medium. I am not a patient person by nature, and this medium provided a fast drying time which led to a ‘quicker’ finished piece for me. !
My works have been and are currently displayed throughout the U.S. in homes, coffeehouses, breweries, wineries and galleries.
I had the honor in 2009 of receiving the Robert Heuell ll Signature Award.l won this award with my painting being chosen for next emerging art from a gallery of 103 Wisconsin Fine Artists from Wisconsin. This honor will always remain close to my heart as l was judged by my ‘peers’, my fellow artists. It is a wonderful feeling for them to see in my artwork what l had hoped to portray.
In 2014 , ‘15 and ‘16 l was honored to be commissioned to create the signature art piece for the Blind Match World Championship, held those years in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
I have also designed and painted many indoor and outdoor murals for homes and businesses. The largest of those being tha design for the side of the Artists Lofts apartment complex in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. The painting adorns the building that once held one portion of the Mirro factory and the design depicts the Midwest, and also the history of of the Mirro Company and the city of Manitowoc.
I hope you enjoy the colors and depths of my designs. I am ever thankful for my artful life and pleased to be able to share those feelings through my paintings for you!
