Born in Italy and raised in Jacksonville, Kristin Bartie has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture and Ceramics from the University of North Florida.
She has studied in Rome, worked as an artist assistant for professional artist Jenny Hager, and has worked as a professional sculptor in Fort Lauderdale. After gaining new inspiration and skills in South Florida, Kristin has moved back to Jacksonville to be with her family and share her talents with those around her. Through experimentation with color and texture, form and function, she brings new ideas to light. Her work is mainly focused on functional tableware with a side interest in sculptural ceramics.
Kristin has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville and in multiple juried galleries across South Florida, including Art Basel in Miami.
