Kristin Tercek was born, raised and continues to live in New Jersey. She graduated with a degree in film from NYU and started a company with her husband that has provided animation services for nearly 20 years and counting. In 2005, she started Cuddly Rigor Mortis LLC, hand making plush dolls of her own design in her spare time. Her Cuddly characters quickly developed a world-wide following with fans ranging from the United States to Japan. She most recently added canines to her fan base with her designs now being made into plush dog toys. In 2009 she decided to get back to her roots and started painting. Self taught at the age of eleven, she always loved painting and creating characters and now has the opportunity to do it full time. Her work has been shown in galleries worldwide, including La Gaite Lyrique Museum in Paris. Her love of Disney has been constant and unwavering - the high-point was being married at the Walt Disney World Resort and having the reception behind Cinderella Castle. She couldn't think of anything better than having the opportunity to paint Disney characters for others to enjoy.
''I was lucky enough to be a part of the inaugural year of the Epcot International Festival of the Arts. I loved spending time with guests and talking with them about Disney and art. At the end of one of these days, my husband and I took a sunset stroll around World Showcase. When we got to the France Pavilion, it reminded me of how much I love The Aristocats.''
