“Cute, but sinister” is an epithet only rarely heard in the description of artwork, but it fits Savannah artist Kristie Duncan’s work perfectly. A self-described maker, Kristie’s creations delight children and adults alike while also hinting at a darker subtext.
Kristie doesn’t make just one thing. Her studio is filled with hand-made stuffed animals, wall-hangings she describes as “fabric paintings,” embroidered shadow boxes that light up at the press of a button, and more. Her creative world is filled with woodland creatures, vintage fabrics, and little blue birds bent on taking over the world. Crafted from humble materials such as cardboard and wood scraps gathered from the side of the road, Kristie is a fibers artist who works in three dimensions and a creator of magical worlds.
