The Kristopher K Story
... Original collections in dreamy colour palettes, inspired by nature.
Kristopher K is an independent design studio, located on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. Founded in 2009 by husband and wife team Mark and Kris.
Kris, an award wining artist, combines her love of Interior Design, with her passion for sophisticated colour palettes, to bring a fresh and uniquely modern style to each new original collection of Kristopher K products and designs.
Winning the Inaugural 1988, Mosman Art Youth Prize - now one of the most prestigious events on the Australian youth art calendar, with her painting “Rock Formation Balmoral” was for Kris, both a humbling and inspiring experience.
Completing a screen-printing course at Seaforth TAFE, Kris started producing her first textile prints the following year, while also working in Hotel Management.
In the early 1990’s Kris and her husband Mark, celebrated the arrival of their son, and Kris, always eager to be painting and designing started renovating the family home.
This successful renovation, led to a career in Property Development.
A highlight for Kris during this time, was the year she spent living abroad, renovating an old 17th century home, in the English countryside.
1996 – 1997, with her development business expanding, Kris studied Office Administration and Financial Skills, at Ultimo TAFE.
In 1998, Kris enrolled at the International School of Colour and Design in Sydney, graduating with her Associate Diploma in Colour and Design in 1999.
In 2009 Kris and Mark founded, Kristopher K Design: An independent design studio, focused on producing uniquely original textile designs, in dreamy colour palettes, inspired by nature.
