Featured Artist | Kristen Abbott

May 7, 2024

Kristen Abbott is a mixed media painter living in Boulder, CO. She enjoys making marks and building up layers in her work with unconventional tools such as brooms, scrapers, and kitchen utensils. Her process is deeply influenced by spending time immersed in nature. Her paintings are guided by embodied emotion as well as thoughtful intention. She is always seeking the balance between spontaneous and planned elements in her work.

Kristen’s work can be found in both private and corporate collections across the US (as well as private collections in France, Italy and England). She was recently awarded a Denis Diderot Grant and spent two weeks as an artist-in-residence at Chateau Orquevaux in Orquevaux, France.
