Digital artist Kristen Keller Reeves has used her skills to reimagine pop culture characters like Disney princesses and action movie heroines.
Her updates on the classic characters often make them into younger or older versions of themselves and use a range accents and pretty pastel colours, to infuse something completely different and attention-grabbing!
In some instances, Kristen has used her own life as inspiration, especially her experience as a new mom to her 18-month year old baby son.
Kristen has her own store on Etsy and this is where she sells her prints online.
