Kristine Kainer grew up in a military family and spent her formative years on the East Coast. She graduated from The College of William and Mary with a degree in Art History and a M.Ed. from George Mason University.
In 2003, Kristine, her husband, and their daughter moved to rural Texas to live on a small, 1920s family farm. During this time, Kristine’s creative spark was ignited in the form of painting.
Self-taught, Kristine specializes in oils. Her subject matter focuses on her long-time loves: food, all things “beachy”, and the natural beauty found in her surroundings. Her works are found in collections both nationally and internationally.
Currently, Kristine splits her time between Georgetown and Schulenburg and enjoys the urban, suburban, and rural lifestyles of Texas, with, of course, the occasional jaunt to the beach.
