Art and Words is Kris Waldherr's official, award-winning website – created by Waldherr. Art and Words is about combining two of the things that mean the most to Kris: art and literature. It's about mythology and magic, folklore and passion. It's about trying to understand ourselves and our lives through the use of ancient stories and interpretative new images.
