MEET THE OWNERS
Andrew & Kristina Simpson
Andrew and Kristina both came from families with a long history of artists. Andrew grew up loving and practicing art. He took private art lessons during his childhood and studied art, architectural drafting and interior design throughout his years in school. He assists in teaching at Othels Art and is the primary graphic designer for the company. Kristina knew from a young age her passion was wanting to help enrich and make an impact on children’s lives. Her commitment and talent for art has allowed her to fulfill that dream as the main art instructor at Othels Art. “If we can help guide, influence or heighten one child’s love for art at Othels then it was all worthwhile.”
