Raised on the west coast of Canada, Kristi finds the forest and garden places of healing and meditation. Her canvas 'temple series' arose from a sense of connectedness with the earth and our ancestors- experienced under the forest canopy. Combining under painting and glazing techniques, the artists goal is to capture a kind of visual imprint of the crisscrossed branches, the mood and light - of her sacred places.
Depending on the weather and subject, the acrylic on canvas pieces are either painted en plein aire or in her studio. Sizes vary from 6 ft wide to 12" wide. Canvas works are shown and sold at various arts venues in Western Canada, most recently at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria , Sooke Harbour House Gallery, Sun Yat Sen Gallery in Vancouver, or at local art events such as Moss Street Paint-in, and Sidney Fine Arts.
Commissions are taken on request. Giclees of some images may be available by special order.
