Kristine Van Wert
My Art is usually a result of people, narratives, and emotions. If the viewer can sit in front on one of my works and devise a story in their mind then one of my main objectives has been achieved. My husband and I live in a historic and interesting neighborhood. Much of the atmosphere seems to activate creative Art much like a collage of day to day life. What I find enjoyable is that Pastels allow the layers and mixing of colours that end in the effect of softness. Some information about my efforts in Art follow. I am however predominately self taught and exhibit a definite style.
