About Me

Welcome! My name is Kristal Serna, and I’m a Michigan-based watercolor painter who's inspired by nature.

Watercolor is my medium of choice because of its ability to create luscious, transparent colors. Much like nature itself, it's a medium that can't be totally controlled or manipulated. 

I grew up in California’s Napa Valley. I spent much of my childhood outdoors camping in Yosemite, swimming in the Pacific Ocean, and exploring nature. For the past decade I've lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Prior to becoming a professional artist, I worked as a lawyer and in other executive positions in the business world. My formal education includes a BA in Native American studies from UC Davis, a law degree from University of Michigan, and a BA in fine arts from Eastern Michigan University.
