Kristin Ann Jones is a professional artist who loves writing stories and poems, illustrating her own books, and painting landscapes and animals. While she has always been creative and artistic, her journey through motherhood inspired her to pursue her passion and focus more on her art. Kristin also worked as a Therapy Dog Team in the Pacific Northwest with her golden retriever, Archer, spending more than 300 hours volunteering and helping others. After finding out that Archer needed surgery for cancerous mast cell tumors, they retired as a therapy dog team and decided to help others through storytelling and art. Through this, Kristin has learned how important it is to live in the present, keep things simple, and enjoy life-much like her canine companion, Archer.
