Kristin Tercek graduated with a degree in film from NYU and started a digital ink and paint company with her husband that has provided animation services for nearly 20 years. In 2005 she started Cuddly Rigor Mortis LLC, hand making plush dolls of her own design that quickly developed a worldwide following with fans ranging from the United States to Japan.
In 2009 she decided to get back to her roots and started painting again. Self taught at the age of eleven, it has been a constant calling and she now has the opportunity to paint full time. By combining her love of nature with her art, she continues to push herself with an ever expanding parade of cock-eyed creatures. Her paintings have been shown all over the world, from Australia to Paris to Disneyland. She still can't believe it.
