It snowed at my mother’s house yesterday

I am so enraptured by the snow. I love it so much.

I can’t wait for it to snow here, though we tend to mostly get ice and very dry weather. It’s still pretty. I like how all the lights down the street are lit up. It becomes quite festive very fast. I like savouring the days until Christmas approaches. Everyone is getting their Christmas decorations out and I can’t necessarily blame them as I like Christmas just as much, but again, just a little more wait time in between would be nice.

By Afonso Abstract Art

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.
