Kristen Grundy

The images I create are a piece of an underlying story that I leave to the viewer to fill in. I provide a glimpse into a wonderland of fantasy, mystery, horror, or alternative reality. This stems from my love of cinema, and my fascination of movie stills.

I have always loved everything about visual storytelling, and creating imagery to convey a story that can only exist in that moment is what motivates me. I am an outcast by nature, and the characters I create reflect that sensibility.

To me, creating an image involves not only creating the character, but also the world in which they exist. My process includes constructing a set, either digitally or physically, and placing my subject within it – often almost as another prop. I give them a role to play, and create a portrait that tells their story.
