Kristin Llamas was born in Rochester, NY, and moved to Nashville, TN in 2008 with her husband and three daughters.

Inspired by the idea that art helps us understand ourselves, each other, and the world around us, Llamas strives to illustrate history, culture and philosophy in the most beautiful and peaceful way. Her work serves as inspiration and storytelling, while complementing any design style.

Llamas created her first solo museum exhibit at age twenty-two. She works in collections and is most well known for the Nomadic Project, Socratic Dialogues and most recently, the ¿Como te Llamas? collection. Her paintings and public art have toured nationally and internationally with pieces residing in permanent collections around the United States and Europe, including the Tennessee State Museum, Taube Museum, North Dakota and Capstone Classical Academy, Utah.

For over a decade, Llamas’ work has been written about in newspapers and magazines as well as a traditionally published hardcover book called “¿Como te Llamas?” with Chronicle Books. The artist divides her time between travel and working in her Nashville studio creating new collections, commissions, and presentations including a TEDx Nashville Talk.

Kristin Llamas is represented by The Studio 208 Gallery, Nashville TN, and Art Elevated Gallery, Park City, Utah. Her collections can also be viewed online at
