I’m selling my art on other sites.

In addition to selling on Etsy and Saatchiart I am also selling on Fine Art America and Red Bubble. Red Bubble works mainly for illustrators because you can sell on various items like mugs and t-shirts, posters…basically anything under the sun. I have a few items that will work, mainly my abstract minimalist stuff, so it’s worth checking out–Mugs are a hot find. Fine Art America is a similar concept but it’s name implies that it is not illustrator focused and it’s expected that you will find fine art (of course) instead.

I don’t think any of these designs are on my sites as I am still deciding which ones to use. Tonight I should have an idea.

Hello, my name is Kristina. I always knew I was a creative-type person but I just didn’t have a name for it in grade two. I grew up working in my dad's art gallery. After high school, I pursued art at Capilano University in Vancouver, BC; and from there, went onto obtain a bachelor of design with honours at the University of Alberta.

Kandinsky said, “it is evident therefore, that colour harmony must rest only on a corresponding vibration of the human soul.”

I make minimalist, gestural, abstract art. I aim for integrity; the only idea I follow is to be true and honest to my art. I hope that viewers feel a sense of freedom and austerity.

Typically, the material inspires me, followed closely by a compulsion to draw, which ends up leading me. Usually, I do not have a specific idea in mind. I do everything spontaneously, but not always, I have my considered portions. It’s never the same though. It’s unpredictable.

I love to work with oils and pencil. Watercolour is not far behind. Willow bark and conte are also in the top five.
