Kristine loves capturing the expressions of animals on canvas. Her first art exhibit at the Leighton Art Centre sold her first chicken painting on opening day of the show. That was the beginning of an incredible journey of painting all kinds of animals.
The Chicks & Cocks Collection is continually evolving, and they sell quickly. Currently she's selling her birds and animals at the Bluerock Gallery in Black Diamond.
This is Crazy Agnes, the first piece Kristine sold at the her first Art Show
Bulls Eye sold at the
2019 Calgary Stampede Gallery.
Dixie and her friends are available for purchase at Bluerock Gallery.
Kristine creates most of her bird/animal paintings with impressionist or abstract backgrounds. She creates the background freely
and then applies the creature she feels drawn too. Sometimes the background creation sits for weeks before the bird or animal speaks to her.
"Once the background is ready for wildlife it tells me who wants to join the canvas, and that's when the emotional connection ties together."
Kristine has explored many animals from majestic horses, to cuddly bears and pigs. To view her variety of works visit her Instagram @kristineandrea_artist
