Kristen Balouch

Kristen wants a world where everyone belongs. She draws it everyday with color, pattern and texture; inspired by nature, diversity and kindness. She writes and illustrates books for children and designs just about everything she touches… things like houses, dishes, quilts, kitchens, gardens, fabric, baby clothes, grown up clothes, shoes and even kitchen sinks. Maybe she is making that world piece by piece. She hopes the pieces that make it to you feel like home.
Kristen makes a world where everyone belongs. Folkland is Kristen’s debut collection with Birch Fabrics. Amiable bunnies hop over winged unicorns and doting fairies while fox, chipmunk and mouse whisper of fields peppered with blossoms, mushrooms and rooted four-leaf clovers. There is room for you too in this soft, earthy, enchanted world. Kristen is an award winning children’s book author and illustrator and the designer behind the Little Blue Mushroom Studio.
