“I wanted to let you know Cokie Roberts found me on your website. I am to create 20-30 Jewish images for her new book. Thank you for promoting me on your website. Who would have thought??? ” Kristina

As a Bitsela contributing artist, Kristina’s work includes whimsical clip art images of Jewish Stars and icons, as well as signed charcoal and pastel illustrations for Jewish Holidays. Kristina’s images are now offered free of charge in the free-bitsela.com gallery of free Jewish images.

Kristina Applegate Lutes has been a working freelance artist and illustrator since 1990. Working in both traditional and digital media, her work features people, animals, landscapes, cultures and religions. She is a Dean’s List graduate of The Art Institute of Boston with a B.F.A. (Fine Arts).

She and her family own and operate a small farm, raising livestock, vegetables and some fruit in Vermont.

Kristina’s newest passion is Kids Share Workshops.

Kids Share Workshops encourage children of all ages to develop their full creative potential through literacy and the visual arts. Kids Share Workshops strives, through the fine arts, to create a unique environment in which children of all ages, abilities, and experience can feel free to imagine, create, and welcome the arts into their lives.

Kids Share Workshops has published their first book Tibetan and Vermont Children’s Narratives. Kristina is also working on a series of children’s books starring their pet Llama, Johnny. Bitsela is pleased to offer signed book-quality illustrations of Johnny in our free gallery, see our Hanukkah and Passover Albums.

Check out some of our favorite images by Kristina:

Passover Llama with matzahHanukkah Llama with DreidleSukkot Llama – use these image to inspire young writers and story tellers to imagine their own stories about the llama who came to the Seder, the Sukkah or the Hanukkah party!

Beautiful Hebrew Alphabet illustrations decorated with flowers and botanicals – use the first letter of the Bat Mitzvah Girl’s Hebrew name on invitations and other communications.  These also work well on baby and baby naming announcements.

Kristina’s drawing of Miriam dancing with Tambourine (titled Miriam’s Song) is a favorite download from the free-bitsela.com web site.

Don’t miss her charming birth and new baby  clip art:  Mazel Tov Stork,  Brit Milah – Bris, and  Baby Naming.

A special treat from Kristina is the signed colored illustration titled “Ready to Go” of  Bat Mitzvah Tallit.  This is a beautiful graphic for the Bat Mitzvah invitation, or for your Mazel Tov cards!
