About the Artist

Kristianne was born and raised in San Clemente, CA and grew up in a family of adventurers and artists. After receiving her BFA from CSULB she set off on her own adventures and honed her expedition skills in the mountains of California, Colorado, and Mexico while guiding for the Sierra Club and the Colorado Outward Bound School. Soon after she met her husband they set out on a life-changing adventure together sailing a 38' sailboat 8,000 miles from San Diego, CA to French Polynesia and north to Hawaii over the course of a year and a half.

Kristianne is a visual artist captivated by works on paper, sculpture, and book arts. Common themes are personal narrative and the intersection of environment and motherhood.

She taught photography at CSUF while her babies were in the womb, has held photographic workshops, received recognition from Luerzer’s Archive, Communication Arts Magazine, and was a Critical Mass finalist. Kristianne’s work has been exhibited all over the country and featured in numerous publications.

When she's not in her studio or creating on location, she is exploring the California coast by sailboat with her husband and teenage children. Kristianne and her family are currently refitting a 46’ Kelly Peterson offshore sailboat to sail to the Sea of Cortez and beyond.

This embroidery class was perfect!  The space is inviting and sparks creativity.  Cecilia is a skilled and effective teacher.  She provides you a cute little kit with everything you need! Incredibly grateful for Cecilia to hold the space for some therapeutic making time, community, and skills that I can take with me. Thank you, thank you!

"I have only attended the Fiber Club and Marbling Workshop so far am so inspired!! Small Space Collective is such a treasure in our town. San Clemente has been needing something like this for a long time. The two women who run this studio have an incredible vision. They are building a wonderful community of artists and crafters who can share and learn from each other."

"Small Space Collective is such a gem!! I was so happy to find a place to go do small artsy projects. I love that you don't have to sign up for multiple weeks but that you can just pick the workshops that you would like to go and it's easier with me with my schedule that varies all the time. I am already signing up for the next fun workshop."
