Kristin Bauer on Using Text, Psychology, and Silent Films as Inspiration

What happens in the studio, shouldn't always stay in the studio. Studio Visit Q+A is a new weekly series that profiles artists in their studios. We ask them questions, they provide answers, and then we have a nice discussion about their work. This week: Tempe artist Kristin Bauer.

Tempe-based artist Kristin Bauer has been exhibiting her work locally and nationally for over a decade now. After graduating from ASU, she started her career off with solo shows at Modified Arts and was living off of selling her paintings. Her work took a detour in 2010 after working towards a master's degree to enable her to practice as an art therapist. That experience completely changed her creative output. "It's almost like a different person made it," Bauer says of her previous work.
