After just a few months in the CHF Accelerator, Kristin made more sales than she had the previous year. She professionalized her art business and greatly expanded her social media presence. After creating a LinkedIn account, she was contacted by a gallerist and invited to participate in a group show, and a former lab colleague purchased a major work. To boost direct sales, Kristin now sells through her revamped website and in an Etsy shop. Her increased profile led to exhibits in nine shows across the US. She increased her visibility further by attending the SOFA (Sculptural Objects and Functional Art) fair in Chicago, where she exhibited work, demonstrated woodcarving techniques, spoke on a panel, and volunteered as an assistant gallerist.
