Kristina Rose Rea (ROSE, as she signs her work) is a visual artist and a professional dabbler. Her preferred medium is painting, but she is a firm believer that each piece should be catered to the medium for which it is most fit. Her style of work most often embraces abstract figurative expressionism: a focus in capturing emotion through brushstrokes while still allowing the viewer to identify within the piece. The name Empathy Easel comes from the core of her passion—fostering empathy and emotional expression with sincerity through the creation of art.
Kristina is currently attending Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
