Kris Jenott is the daughter of two artists. She knew she wanted to be an artist by age 4, and write books and stories when she grew up. Kris sold her first painting at age 14 and won many art awards in high school. She also won awards for public speaking, acting, and she became the high school newspaper editor in her senior year. Kris graduated from high school with an art and journalism scholarship. In college, she won many more awards for her artwork and also excelled at gymnastics and forensics. Kris and her debate partner won first place beating Stanford University.
Kris went on to teach art classes, calligraphy classes, lettering classes, and painting, to both children and adults. She worked in an audio visual department, became the lay out designer for a big Seattle based newspaper, and became the mother of two talented, intelligent children. She was “discovered” and became a petite fashion model doing ads, runway for the big department stores, and some TV. She also had a long and excellent career working in Nevada gaming as a casino host and casino executive. She went back to college and received her advanced paralegal certificate and worked 5 years helping battered women and abused children through the court system.
Kris took her early retirement and began painting daily. She won many awards and enjoyed showing her work at the Ebb Tide Gallery in Gig Harbor and selling it at the Muckleshoot Casino Gift Shop. Today, Kris lives in rural Pacific County and sells her artistic creations at her home art studio and online. She teaches art classes and enjoys writing and creating adult coloring books and a series of children’s books. She is excited to continue painting and writing for the rest of her life.
