Kristine is a Bend, OR artist focusing on abstract paintings. Her paintings represent visual diaries of life. She finds sparks of inspiration everywhere she goes, whether that be hiking, paddle boarding or sitting in a coffee shop. She uses art as a way to process life and let her escape at the end of the day. Kristine has found her favorite medium to work with is acrylic on canvas, in of course bright whimsical colors. Art is an integral part of Kristine’s life. Her sidewalks as a child were covered in chalk drawings, and she went on to major with a fine arts degree from SPU. While living in Seattle she began to explore abstract paintings, and has continued in that work since.
