Kristin Swenson-Lintault is a multi-media artist (born 1969) in Kentucky, raised in Illinois, and currently lives in Seattle, WA. with husband and son. She earned her MFA in Fiber/Textiles and BA in Fine Art-Drawing at Southern Illinois University. She studied painting at Hospitalfield House, a 13C.

In addition she has traveled to France, Netherlands, Germany, Mexico and Belize to research art, history and architecture.
In 2001, after a visit to R&F Handmade Paints to witness encaustic paint production, she began combining aspects of her earlier approach to drawing, painting, textile dyeing and printing, paper pulp painting, floor cloths, ceramics, outdoor installations, and photography, into her encaustic painting. Her encaustic paintings were juried into the first 2007 Annual Encaustic Conference exhibition as well as last year’s 2009 Conference show at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. Her KSL STUDIO blog is her art studio journal of recent work, sketchbook drawings and travel photos that together explore her creative process. Kristin teaches mixed media encaustic painting workshops with a fiber/textile emphasis at her studio in Seattle.
