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 is Kristin’s current fascination 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 is a culmination of years and years (did I mention years?) of dreaming about a creative venture and venue. A milestone birthday in June 2012 prompted action. Life is short! Buh-bye Strategic Planning, Meeting Facilitation, and Economic Development and Helllloooo Ephemera Paducah!”
With her background in Chamber of Commerce work and Southern Roots, hospitality comes naturally for Kristin. She wants you to make great art, have a wonderful time, and not stress during your visit to Ephemera Paducah.
“The immersion in a day of art, the quality of the instructors, the great people you’ll met along the way, and the environment of appreciation and support make for a wonderful friends’ trip,” Kristin says. “I hope everyone leaves Ephemera Paducah learning new skills and energized.”
