When someone's eyes are smiling you know something awesome is about to happen. That is the feeling I wanted to capture when I named my art adventures Smiling Eye Studio.

My name is Kirsten Varga and I am an artist. I like having paint on my hands and charcoal smudges on my face. I am also a wife to a gorgeous hunk of a man and a mother to four beautiful daughters. (Yes, my husband is very lucky as he will be surrounded by beautiful, adoring women his entire life.)

I earned a Bachelors of Fine Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design and Illustration from the University of Arizona. My time there was magical and I have it on my bucket list to continue my education and earn a Masters degree. School is perhaps one of my very favorite things.

This humble blog is home to my online portfolio. Enjoy your time here. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.

I have dreams of having an online shop full of prints and original art. If that is something you would like to see please let me know.
