Kristie David was born and raised in Birmingham. She was a fine arts major concentrating on graphic design from UAB. She did however, decide that the corporate world was not her cup of tea. After spending several years working odd jobs, she had a daughter, and her time at home allowed her to refocus and start being creative again. Kristie paints very detailed works on wood using acrylic paints. A love of nature and eight years of volunteering at The Alabama Wildlife Center are a constant source of inspiration in her work. She also works with fiber, sewing together functional pieces such as pillows, rag dolls and wearable art.
