Krista Huot was born and raised in northern British Columbia, Canada. It was during this childhood that she developed an obsession for fairy tales, cartoons, and coloring books. Krista has an education in both fine arts and classical animation and has worked in the animation industry on projects for Cartoon Network and Disney. She takes influence from antique dolls, storybooks with worn golden spines, the ballet lessons she took growing up, and the unicorn posters her Mom put up in her bedroom when she was very small. She lives in Montreal, Quebec and refuses to grow up.
