Cristine Kossow

Cristine Kossow has lived her whole life alongside the Hudson River – except for a six year hippie hiatus on a farm in Maine.

A Parsons trained designer, she always had enough freelance work to support her cycling career, which took her to Europe and around the US to race and party with a decidedly maniacal community of, well, maniacs.

She now focuses her competitive energy in the direction of large rodents who have the wrong idea that the lush garden she nurtures is theirs. Apart from the occasional fur flying kerfuffle, life has settled into a rhythm of pastels, dog walks, deep friendships, sojourns to Malawi, Africa, playing hammer dulcimer, and more pastels.

In October 2013, Cristine achieved Signature Status in the Pastel Society of America. She is also a member of the Connecticut Pastel Society. Her work has been on exhibit at the National Arts Club and Salmagundi Club in New York City, and the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio.
