Florida artist Kristin Herzog grew up on the coast of Massachusetts and was painting before starting school. She began her adult career as one of very few women draftsmen for civil engineering companies before moving to New York City to begin training as a publication designer at the School of Visual Arts. Over time she moved around the country, teaching at Indiana University, becoming Design Director for the Phi Delta Kappan Magazine, and Art Director for the Dayton Daily News in Ohio before joining the faculty at the University of Florida. Herzog studied drawing and painting at Sweet Briar College with Loren Oliver, where she graduated cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa. She also took classes with Bauhaus artist Kurt Kranz in Hamburg, Germany. Her MFA is from George Washington University. Her current work ranges from non-representational to abstract, often with a landscape or vegetative reference. Herzog enjoys traveling frequently to residencies in the US and abroad. Her work has been juried into over 80 regional, national and international shows and has won two awards from The Artist’s Magazine. In 2017 she accompanied one of her paintings to an international show in China. Herzog paints every day and lives with the requisite two cats and an undetermined number of alligators in Naples FL.
Her work can be seen at MAC Art Galleries, 833 NE 4th Avenue, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33304 and Judith Liegeois Designs, 363 12th Ave S, Naples, FL 34102, or by appointment. Please use the contact form below.
