About Kristen

Harford County

Kristen Hadaway's picture
I am a creatively driven young artist who has a strong passion for video games and creating characters. I love originating other worlds through art; imagining new characters, creatures, and environments. I am a fast learner, and have an immense passion for art; I’ve been creative for all my life. Everything I do, I relate to art. From problem solving, to organizing, I always look at it from an artistic and creative perspective. I major in illustration with a concentration in painting.
