Artist Profile: Kristy Lester

Our Artist Profile for April is Kristy Lester with Above and Beyond Care! Born and raised in Malvern, Kristy has always possessed a creative spark waiting to be ignited. It wasn't until she stumbled upon painting tutorials on the internet that she realized her passion for pouring paint art.

What fascinates her most about pouring paint is the unique expression and combination of colors and textures, promising something new and exciting every time. Despite the challenges she faces as someone who spends her days in a wheelchair, Kristy finds solace and peace in her art. Painting serves as a sanctuary where her troubles fade into the background, allowing her creativity to take center stage. It's a medium through which she expresses herself and finds a sense of purpose and fulfillment.

As Kristy's talent has blossomed, so has her ambition. She dreams of owning her own business – one that merges her love for painting with her other love, poetry writing. Through her art, she aims to challenge perceptions and break down barriers, advocating for the visibility and recognition of individuals with disabilities. Kristy's art has not only found admiration among her family and friends but has also garnered attention online through her group "Kristy's Kreations Acrylic Studio." Each sale of her artwork brings her immense joy, as it represents a piece of her soul shared with the world.

Apart from painting, Kristy is an avid gardener with a love for flowers, particularly roses, gardenias, and hydrangeas. Her green thumb brings life to her surroundings, adding another layer to her artistic expression. She enjoys singing oldies but goodies, indulging in chocolate treats, and spending time with her beloved dog. Kristy also takes pride in her home, which she fondly refers to as her castle. Her journey to homeownership was not without its challenges, but her determination and faith saw her through. She is also actively involved with Habitat for Humanity, contributing to the construction of homes for those in need.

Despite the misconceptions and prejudices she encounters, Kristy remains undeterred. She believes in the power of perseverance and encourages others to hold onto their dreams, no matter the obstacles they face. For her, it's not about the destination but the journey – a journey filled with hope, courage, and an unwavering belief in herself. With her infectious positivity and indomitable spirit, Kristy Lester continues to inspire others to embrace their passions and chase their dreams, one brushstroke at a time.
