KRISTEN RINGMAN is a deaf artist, writer, and wanderer.
Her paternal family came from Sweden & Finland before they immigrated to America, so the title of this site draws upon these origins as well as her studies in Norse shamanism and the fox as one of her animal familiars.
Kristen is perpetually inspired by animals, nature, world mythology, and her wanderings to far off countries like India, Thailand, and Iceland.
Acrylic paint is her current preferred medium and she loves to paint on wood panels & wood rounds. Kristen uses 16 gauge copper wire for hanging most of her paintings and leather cording for the smallest ones. She’s been drawn to metallic accents lately, so many of her paintings have copper painted edges.
Kristen is also the author of two Lambda Literary Finalist books: I STOLE YOU: Stories from the Fae (Handtype Press 2017) and MAKARA: a novel (Handtype Press 2012):
