Meet Kristen Hess

Little Rock native Kristen Hess has been taken captive by the rich colors and thick textures of oil paints since 2005.

Her representational style along with an extensive background in drawing come together with the atmospheric colors of the impressionists to create paintings that capture the emotion of the place or subject.
