Kristin Hyde

Kristin Hyde

Colour energizes me – it feeds my soul. 

I’m in my happy place when I’m creating or am surrounded by colour. I’m an intuitive and mixed media and textile artist with an interest in Art Jewellery- Particularly silversmithing.

Painting and being Creative make me happy- I create to express my emotions and unlock untold stories that evoke memories. I paint to make others happy and to make them smile – to escape to another world if only for a little while. I create from my heart.
To be able to work at what is your passion is a real privilege.

I feel very humbled to know that my Jewellery, Textiles and Art have found homes worldwide.
