Kristin DeGeorge (born in US, 1964) studied Fine Arts with painters such as Emma Amos and Joan Semmel at Mason Gross School of the Arts, (New Jersey, USA) receiving her Bachelors of Arts from Rutgers University (1987). DeGeorge has a passion for language that led her early on to Spain, whose artistic traditions, customs and landscapes have deeply influenced her work. In Barcelona, she studied graphic design and printmaking at EINA Escola de Disseny (1989-91), where she worked with artists and designers such as Rosa Tarruella, Patricio Vélez and Claret Serrahima.
She became involved in the “Barcelona Posat Guapa” campaign as Coordinator of Chromatic Research for the "Las Façanas de la Rambla" under the direction of architect Josep-Emili Hernández-Cros (1991-92). In 1998, at the birth of her daughter Emma, she founded KDCARDS, creative factory of hand made cards that changed the face of invitations in Spain.
DeGeorge currently works out of her studio in France La Charnière, Hot Springs, and keeps close ties to Master printer Ivan Araujo's studio in Madrid. She is member of the Arkansas Artist Registry and Arkansas Society of Printmakers. She is founder of the international women's printmaking project “A R T ï T S” .
