Welcome! My name is Kristal Serna, and I’m a Michigan-based watercolor painter obsessed with 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 & spent my childhood camping in Yosemite, swimming in the Pacific Ocean, and hiking through the Sierra Nevadas. Spending time outdoors gives me a sense of peace that’s hard to find elsewhere. Thus, I create watercolor paintings that capture the beauty and tranquility of nature so it can be enjoyed all the time, wherever you are.
As far as education, I earned my bachelor of fine arts degree from Eastern Michigan University. I also have a B.A. in Native American Studies from UC Davis and a J.D. from University of Michigan Law School.
I want to fill every home with gorgeous images of nature and an appreciation for our natural world. I want to bring the outdoors in to every home.
