Hello, my name is Kristina Paro and I am an artist, and an addict to creativity.
My addiction to creativity start at the age of 7, with a box of crayons and a strict rule “DO NOT DRAW ON THE WALLS!”. As my addiction grew so did my choice of media, I started drawing portraits of celebrities and cartoons, on the wall.

I grew up in a creative family. My mother is an addict, and even through I saw the problems that creativity caused in my family, I still found it attractive. At the age of 19 my addiction grew, and it was out of control. I applied to Loyalist College for the Advertising Program, 2 years later I was given a diploma supporting this creative addiction.

After College I followed my families footsteps. I became self employed and shared my addiction with my clients. I have designed business packages for small business and logo’s to be digitized. My creativity hasn’t stopped, I still draw portraits of babies and pets for clients on paper.
