Kristen is a published Author, Artist, Singer-Songwriter and Health Practitioner in Oregon. Her background is in the arts and music industry, but her writing and book illustrations began in in Naples, Florida, 1991.
She claims to have fallen in love with the land when, on one very special day, after emerging from the Everglades onto a dazzling white beach, she asked out loud to herself, “Why do I feel so much?”
A voice inside her answered even before she barely finished her question, “So that some may feel a little.”
That was her cue. Kristen went on to write the book, Voices of the Earth (VOTE) against the advice of a Naples Literary Agent that told her educational text does not belong in a coloring book. She knew it was much more than a coloring book.
The combination of education with art, story-telling with activism, and even music was unheard of at that time. Farquhar self-published soon after and the rest is history.
