About Us

Fine Art by Kristi Arzola was established in the Summer of 2014.  Kristi was a new mom and wanted to lead by example for her son.  She left a career she loved in aerospace (where she worked as a Training Developer and Instructor) to combine her skills of teaching with her passion for fine art.

Kristi has always gravitated towards fine art since the young age of 9.  She attended Northwest College of Art & Design in Poulsbo Washington, where she received a Bachelor’s of Fine Art degree; majoring in both Fine Art and Multi Media.  Kristi has the rare ability to break down the process of art into easily understood sequential steps.

Art lessons are available for both children and adults.  No matter what the learner’s experience level is, Kristi specializes on basic art techniques while inspiring creativity and freedom of expression. Upcoming art lessons can be found on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/KristiArzola/

Kristi is well-versed in a range of art mediums.  Watercolors, oils, acrylics, colored pencils and graphite, just to name a few.  Although Kristi’s personal choice is to paint with watercolors, if you’re interested in learning a different medium please don’t be afraid to reach out.  It is our goal at Fine Art by Kristi Arzola to provide a quality product and experience for all our customers.

If you are interested in a one-of-a-kind piece of art for your home or business, Kristi does accept commissions.  Testimonials and pricing are posted here: https://www.kristiarzola.com/commissions/

We hope to have the opportunity to meet you and to provide a quality art experience.  Regardless of where your creative journey takes you, we hope you continue to be true to yourself as an artist and never give up on the adventure of learning.  We all need to start somewhere!
