Too much time between painting sessions

I think…but I’m not sure that I have too much time between painting sessions in order to progress at the rate I want to. I guess the only solution right now is to either A) spend more time in the studio after work (😬), or spend an hour more while there on the weekends. More plausible for the second idea. I want to improve faster than I am…although honestly, I am progressing at a pretty good speed IMO. Not an amateur anymore. Huzzah.

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.
