CHRIS KRUPINSKI

We are honored to have Chris Krupinski as our judge.  Chris is a renowned artist who has an international following.  Chris is a Dolphin Fellow of the American Watercolor Society, signature member of the National Watercolor Society, Rocky Mountain Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America (Master Status), Watercolor West-Master, and Allied Artists, to name a few. She has been published in major watercolor publications and has been a featured artist in numerous leading national art magazines.  Her work has been in international exhibitions in China, Russia, Taiwan, Thailand, Greece, Holland, Italy, and Turkey. Her watercolors are hung in several corporate collections and are cherished additions to the finest of private collections.
 
Chris's watercolors are created with special consideration to detail. By focusing much of her attention to the smallest detail, the viewer is drawn into the intricacies of her work. Dynamic light and shadow treatments are prominent statements in her paintings. The play of lights and darks develop effective abstract design. Emphasizing these two elements has enabled her to create powerfully expressive still lifes and bold compositions.
