I'm happy to feature local artist Kristina Sellers, who is showing at Edge Coffee for our spring show.
“An art juror once said to me 'Your paintings are about light'. She was so right, and it thrilled me that the message was received. My passion for chasing light, it's effects and the feelings evoked by it, continues to this day. I divide my time between studio work and plein air painting. My plein air work is challenging, but it is constantly informing me in ways I can use in my studio work. In recent years, I have been developing my skills with palette knife painting.”
Kristina Sellers is an award winning impressionist painter. She has participated in local, regional and national art competitions and shows, including the Pacific Northwest Plein Air Exhibition,held at the Maryhill Museum, where she recently won the award for “Best Water” in a plein air painting. She has participated at “Paris in the Park Blocks” at the Portland Art Museum and her work can be seen on the show “Portlandia”. She resides in the Portland, Oregon area with her husband, calico and two dogs.
