Kris WiltseFor over 30 years Kris has created illustrations for the publishing, editorial and packaging industries nationwide.

Much of her art and illustration focus on the natural world. Trees, water, animals and human relationships are common subjects. And because she enjoys spending time outdoors, she often sketches and paints on location.

Before starting her illustration career she received a BA in painting from Western Washington University, Bellingham. She continued her studies in illustration at the School of Visual Concepts, Seattle, where she eventually taught figure drawing, basic drawing, watercolor and illustration.
