The Artist

About Kristen

Motivated by integrity and responsibility as a visual communicator, I aim to add beauty to the world through the aesthetics and authenticity of my work. My painting style has evolved over decades of exploration with a variety of subjects and materials, revealing this fundamental goal: to create resonant, harmonious canvases reflecting the richness of human experience through the exquisite use of color, light, and form.

As a practitioner and instructor of yoga, the themes of balance and integration inspire and permeate my work. I repeatedly rotate the canvas while working towards a composition where the weight of color and contrast feels balanced, where the viewer is invited to participate and to pause. Intuitive abstractions emerge through layering.

Color exploration defines my process as the relationships of juxtaposed hues and the emotional impact of painted colors are continually refined. I incorporate scripted words, draw linear marks into softer abstracted masses, and use breath to manipulate the paths of dripped paint.

Habitually attentive to formal art elements, I incorporate this foundation and then depart from it to remain open to the unexpected. Metaphors for life – facing the unknown with courage, embracing surrender, being guided by the heart, letting go of what is no longer serving, and creating space for transformation – are relevant considerations on our life journeys and on my canvases. Quieting evaluative narratives and sensing intuitive feeling, using less representational imagery and more broad forms, is a bold and exciting place from which to be working, and it is my hope that my paintings reflect the truth of that energy.
