My name is Kristen Solecki and I am a freelance artist working outside of the Philadelphia area. All of my artwork is made traditionally, combining different types of mixed media such as traditional printmaking, drawing with ink, and paint. My work is often nostalgic and based off of small moments and stories translated through my own lens. I love photography, the ocean, and reading and I think all of those things are apparent in my work!
What will shoppers find in your tent?
Shoppers will find hand silkscreened apparel such as T-shirts, tote bags, and baby onesies. They will also find prints of original artwork, notecards, hand painted mirrors, as well as original artwork.
Where do you find in your inspiration?Most of my inspiration comes from experiences and stories big and small. It can come from the simplest thing like buying a cup of coffee. That's what I love most about art.
Besides Clover, where is your favorite place to shop for art, antiques, vintage or handmade?
I really like Vix Emporium for handmade art and Three Potato Four is one of my favorite vintage stores. Aids Thrift in Philadelphia has good finds and all the proceeds go to a great cause.
What possession do you most cherish?I recently was given a set of "Love is.." glasses from the 70's that were my great-grandmother's. I really love them!
