For this month’s Vetrepreneur Spotlight, we sat down with Kristin Cronic, U.S. Navy Veteran and artist behind our newest exhibition, A Midshipman’s Journey. She shared what inspired her artistic journey and how Easel On Stribling connects you to the Naval Academy story through painting.
About Easel On Stribling
Easel On Stribling is your one stop shop for all U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) gifts, original paintings, art prints and stationery.
It’s no Bancroft Hall but wander around and you’ll find the only comprehensive body of artwork that tells timeless USNA stories by someone who chopped the halls with artsy eyes as a midshipman. These stories are the ones that happen between training and tears. They come into focus with time and distance. When you can finally see how steel-clad courage is forged and how pushing beyond personal discomfort to meet the demands of the mission leads to beautiful growth.
