theStudio Artist of the Week…

Kristy Lynn, Painter, Brooklyn, NY

Kristy Lynn’s work explores the realms familiar to dreamers and wanderers. Texture built with wax-infused oil paint and soft color blended from pastel tones flesh out her visions from the subconscious. Delicate lines define her drawings and also form the foundation of her paintings.

In the fall of 2006, Kristy made an adventurous move to Tucson, Arizona. Her time in Arizona was artistically nurturing and she developed a more colorful palette— this carried into her return to New York.

Her favorite place of inspiration is nature, Kristy says that “trees are especially magical and soothing to be around”. She combines different mediums to create her colorful paintings. She tries to evoke a feeling of “calm introspection” from those who view her work. Kristy says she loves everything about being an artist. “It makes me happy on many different levels.” Though, if she couldn’t be an artist, she says her second career choice would be a librarian. Artists that inspire Kristy are Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, Eva Hesse, Kiki Smith, Marcel Duchamp, and Man Ray.
