Artist: Kristin Lee Hager , Kristin Lee Hager Art
Medium: Alcohol Ink, Acrylic, Watercolor, Pastel, Veil Watercolor
I have lived in the Corvallis area since 1991. I studied art for two years in college in Santa Barbara. While never working as a professional artist, I continued to draw and paint at home in my spare time. My artistic passion was rekindled when my two children started painting and drawing at theCorvallis Waldorf School. I began to devote more time and effort to my artistic endeavors and learning from other artists.
I am inspired by color. When I start a painting, I start with just one color. I love the subtleties and nuances that can be achieved by blending colors together and expressing form through them. Sometimes a form does not appear and the painting is just color. Other times I see a form/shape and I create from there. This is my favorite way to paint.
I enjoy trying different mediums and techniques and exploring the possibilities that they offer. I am particularly drawn to the techniques of “wet on wet” using watercolor, alcohol ink, and oil pastels. I also love acrylics and veil painting.
In addition to creating works to be hung on a wall, I also make greeting cards, prints and journals from my artwork.
