The Lamplight Collective was started in 2019 by Kristen Vanderbilt, as the first step in cultivating a collaborative, creative community. After finding inspiration during a 30 day art challenge, she felt called to design uplifting artwork that would bring joy and encouragement to others.

Kristen’s primary artistic focus is in digital painting and design. When not drawing, you might find her reading, taking pictures, or off chasing butterflies through Idaho’s breathtaking wilderness. She believes in giving more than you take, pursuing your dreams, and following the highest calling of all, love.
