Kristi L. Stout A loving spiritualist and inquisitive adventurer, Kristi came into the world crying and screaming –that is until the age of two when she could hold a pencil and make it work. At the age of 5 she decided she wanted to be a cartoonist. She ferociously obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Arts and Animation originally thinking—with her entire heart—she wanted to be a cartoon animator. However, through an intriguing series of (fortunately) unfortunate events, she instead became what was right in front of her all along. Associating with but not limited to these things: She is and always has been –a writer, a creator and a living form of expression. She finds pleasure in the small things, knowledge in the large things and wisdom in the combination of it all. With an extensive career, Kristi invested in the art industry as a graphic artist, assistant magazine editor, creator and illustrator of a children’s column, industrial designer, fine artist and published illustrator. She currently has aspirations to publish her first illustrated short fiction and loves to blog / journal about empowerment and inspiration, continuously conspiring to inspire the world! Her signature is the rose. She has an intrigue with angels. Her greatest passion in life is life itself. Her favorite expression is LOVE.
