Kristin Williams has spent a lifetime playing with yarn, glitter, clay, rubber stamps, paper, paints, and glue. She was lucky to have an incredibly talented craftswoman for a mother who saw great value in children’s art and craft classes. That planted a seed for lifelong learning and craft supply hoarding. Collage using ephemera and acrylic paints as well as stitching and embroidery are Kristin’s current fascinations and the basis for her artwork. A Knoxville, Tennessee native, she moved to Paducah in 1996 after which she fell in love and put down roots.
Ephemera Paducah in its location at 333 N. 9th Street had a great run from April 2013 to November 2022. As a milestone birthday launched the creative workshop and art store; another one is giving it pause for 2023. Kristin is celebrating turning 60 with a Gap Year to renew, refresh, travel, make art, and have weekends free to spend with family and friends. Stay tuned to the Blog and the Ephemera Paducah Social Media accounts as this is a break, and not goodbye. As she figures out her next steps in the world of Mixed Media Art Education, plans will form, and cool opportunities will emerge.
