About Kristin Zuller

Kristin Zuller is a multidisciplinary artist from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Obsessively curious, much of her work is based on exploration of different mediums and creative expression. As the artistically-inclined child, drawing and painting were her first love, which created her path to over 15 years of experience in graphic design, identity and brand-building, and a full circle return to illustration and mural work. The recurring theme in her art is the power of the divine feminine rooted in nature and self-empowerment.

Where are you from? Born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI.

Your connection to Grand Rapids – Raised, schooled, and employed.

Liberation-

To me liberation means the act at freeing one’s self from restraint.

Reclamation-

Reclamation, the reclaiming of those liberties.

A little bit about who you are etc– A mother of three young adults, an entrepreneur, and an artist.
