My Story


samples of art by whimsical animal artist Kristy Jarvis

Kristy Jarvis is a whimsical artist and DFW local. She’s a dreamer, animal-lover, and mermaid at heart. Her paintings and sculptures feature characters filled with quirky personalities. Each piece is thoughtfully imagined and brought to life using watercolor and acrylic paint, ink, clay, and other mixed-media.

As a child, she loved drawing and creating characters from found objects. Her creativity lead her to a career in Graphic Design. After years of designing digital layouts, she chose to take a break and stay home with her children which was where her heart was. Spending their day playing and reading stories (which often featured animals) she was inspired to create whimsical art. She began drawing at nap time which later lead to painting and sculpting. Now with both of children off to school she is able to spend a few hours a day creating.
