Kyrstin Avello Profile

I'm a Chicago based Game Development Artist.

At an early age I fell in love with a certain red headed mermaid. Week after week I opted to skip ballet lessons, instead watching Saturday morning cartoons and coloring. There was never a shortage of broken crayons in the house, and before I knew it I was researching art careers.

Having attended the Illinois Institute of Art, I currently work at WMS Gaming creating both original and licensed artwork for slot-based gaming experiences. I also moonlight as a freelancer, working on various design projects with companies and individuals alike.

Outside of work I can be found with coffee in one hand, a comic book in the other. In the few months Chicago finds itself with above zero temperatures, I'll likely be fretting about how the Cubs are faring in the NL standings.
