Kristin Swenson-Lintault is a painter examining origins, connections, and lifelines using textile structures and natural forms. Her current process integrates drawing, painting, and monotype printing using encaustic and mixed media.

Her work has been exhibited in shows locally, nationally, and in Nakajo, Japan, and is featured on the covers of Translational Perspectives in Auditory Neuroscience, a textbook series by Tremblay and Burkard. Her work is included in the permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library and the Museum of Encaustic Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
