Achromatik Arts is Kristine (Kay)
Astop (she/they). She is an emerging Canadian marker artist,
based in Calgary (Mohkínstsis), Alberta, Canada.
While she has explored a multitude of mediums, styles and subject matter, her primary passion is
photorealism that focuses on the human (or nearly human) form.
Having been raised on rich diet of science fiction, fantasy and horror, much of Kristine’s work is a love
letter to those genres. She has a particular affinity and fondness for monsters and broken things.
When she isn't obsessively hunched over her latest creation, Kristine spends her time indulging her geeky
tendencies through her love of theatre, film, science fiction, horror, aerial arts, and video games. She enjoys running,
yoga and hiking.
Kristine has also discovered a love of words and has started to explore expressing herself through poetry and spoken word. She is an active member of the local amateur theatre community where she volunteers and supports
numerous theatrical productions throughout the season.She has produced, directed and set designed, as
well as provided properties fabrication, special effects, and scenic art support for over thirty productions
over the last few seasons.
Kristine would jump at the promise of adventure if a YT-1300 Transport or a salvaged MCRN corvette-class frigate
showed up outside their house.
