A self-taught artist, based in Sheffield, UK, Kristie’s dynamic painting style is characterised by intuitive and expressive mark making underpinned by depth and the influence of natural forms.
The bold foreground marks are built up from, and overlay, the subtly abstracted layers beneath. This lends the work a real depth and sense of movement. There is a clear interest in light and form as well as a vibrancy to the use of colour.
Reminiscent of those ethereal moments when vision is obscured but abstracted elements of colour, form and movement remain, there is a joyful vitality and expressiveness to Kristie’s work.
