Anchors, Kristin

A butterfly wings and a mushroom.

“Kristin Tera Anchors (American, b. 1987) is a visual artist and emergency medicine doctor based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her current studio practice includes dissecting the textbooks she accumulated in training to develop hand cut collages which aim to heal the fractured relationship between body and mind, human and the more-than-human world. 

Her mature sense of wonder manifests in every piece, which are both playful and meaningful. With keen attention to detail she seamlessly weaves found imagery to tell stories informed by her unique and uninhibited access to life and death.

Anchors has had a life-long creative practice without formal training in Art. She studied Life Sciences and Philosophy at Arizona State University prior to completing medical school at the University of Arizona. She received specialty training in Emergency Medicine at the University of New Mexico Hospital.”
