Artist Statement

My subject matter comes from the natural world surrounding us.  It is an expression that transcends beyond just painting beautiful pictures. It is being able to convey my overwhelming inspiration. The feeling of being part of something bigger, and my deep connection with nature.

 I work with watercolor on rice paper, using wax as a resist. The wax creates a visual texture.  The rice paper paired with the transparent watercolor allows the light to glow from within.  I think it is my process people are most interested in. They are curious about how I achieve the final results. The dark veins of texture travel throughout the work to create a distinct portrait of nature.

You can see more available artwork on my Watercolor batik  and Oil painting pages.

Krista was on the Community One cable TV show “Studio Tour”. She was a top 10 finalist in the International Artists magazine’s floral competition. As a result, she had a full page write-up with a picture of “Show Stopper” published in the magazine. Rogers Chocolates licensed her “Sunflowers” watercolor for their Canadian artist collection of chocolate tins. The Proxim Group also licensed her artwork “Garden Staple” for their 2015 calendar cover.

Being a self-taught artist she loves to experiment and strives for artistic growth. She recently began plein air painting as a building block for her skills. Krista was born in Saint John NB. For the last 15 years, she has lived in Rothesay NB  with her husband, daughter, and their cocker spaniel Jak.
