This month I am proud to feature Kirsten’s Kreations – making beautiful custom digital art and portraits available to you! I personally have used Kirsten’s services to create two beautiful custom digital portraits of my family so I am super happy to have the opportunity to highlight her business on my blog.
Digital portraits are great for avatars on social media, phone wallpapers, printed out as home decor, as a gift for someone you love and more… read on to learn more about Kirsten and her business.

What inspired you to start your small business?
I think we all may have gotten to that point in the pandemic where we get bored of our own routine. I had always been artistic, but I was looking for a new creative outlet, so I decided to give digital art a try! I practiced on some photos and the feedback I got was phenomenal! One thing led to another and I ended up starting my own business!
What do you sell/make and/or what service(s) do you provide?
I create custom digital portraits! I can either recreate an exact picture, or I can go off of reference photos to create an entirely new portrait!
What is your favorite type of commission to do?
Drawing portraits for bereaved families will always have a special place in my heart. I am honored to create a memory of a lost loved one. I’ve drawn a mother cradling her baby girl that she miscarried at 14 weeks, Jesus playing with someone’s daughter who was born still, and a sweet child who lost her battle with cancer.
What has been your biggest challenge managing a small business?
My biggest challenge has been miscommunications. The good thing is that you can learn from them and prevent them from happening again!
