Born and raised on the West Coast of Canada, Kristi now resides and paints in her home based studio at the edge of the rainforest in Saanich, on Vancouver Island, B.C. , Canada. The artist favours sepia ink, quill pens, amber tones, and loves glowing lines which all echo her coastal island environment. Kristi is influenced by Eastern Mandala artists, the Impressionists and Victorian Childrens books Illustrators. She enjoys broad subject and media: from children's book illustration, environmental posters, metis beadwork design and salvaged paper collage, to fine art canvas' or mandalas. Although Kristi is known for her ink and quill pen and expressionist canvas works, if left to her own devices, she would be tempted to dabble morning to night, in every medium known to mankind. Please enjoy the galleries and feel free to contact the artist.
