The Art of Aquariann

If you haven't seen the fantasy artwork of Aquariann, you are missing out! Artist Kristin has a beautiful mix of fairies, dragons, mermaids and even a lone pirate! Her colored pencil artwork is bright, fresh and eye-catching.

Kristin attended Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, where she majored in graphic design. She considers herself mainly a self-taught artist, and says that "messy mediums such as paint and charcoal have never been very nice to [me], but the smooth glide of colored pencils is magic."

One of her most popular pieces is "Aware", a breast cancer awareness fairy inspired by Kristin's mom, a survivor of more than 15 years. "Aware" is featured in several Etsy treasuries this week, as Breast Cancer Awareness Month approaches in October. $5 from every sale goes to Women Supporting Women on the eastern shore.

She offers her artwork as 5 x 7" and 8 x 10" prints, professionally printed by DeviantArt, or as magnets, bookmarks or pinback buttons

Kristin is an active member of Etsy's Fantasy Artists of Etsy Team, known as the FAEteam. You can also find the art of Aquariann on Etsy, Artfire, DeviantArt, Squidoo, flickr, Twitter and Facebook!

In addition, you can also follow Kristin of Aquariann Art at her blog, "the art and tree chatter of aquariann". She regularly posts art updates, treasuries and other featured sellers, as well as interesting observations and cool Etsy finds.


One of my favorite pieces by Kristin is "Damsel" - a lovely red-haired maiden and her best friend, a large emerald dragon. Gorgeous color work!

Don't walk.... stretch your fairy wings and fly over to check out the fantasy artwork of Aquariann!
