About the Artist

Kristina grew up in Manhattan. Born to professional European ice-skating stars, she began skating at the age of two. After performing for most of her life she left ice-skating behind to pursue other endeavors, most notably the famous jazz club, Zinc, that she opened with her brother in 1993. After running the club for many years, she now dedicates all of her time to sculpting. Her past life of professional ice-skating and dancing have inspired her to look for elegant lines and beauty within her sculpting. She has trained with master sculptor Anthony Antonios at the Art Students League. She lives in New York City with her husband and two boys.
