I’ve been thinking and I recall in school how we were encouraged in different ways to crate art and I think I will follow some of their advice now. For the time being. It’s not hard to be inspired when it’s all around you.

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.View Archive →
