Featured Artist, Kristine Biegel is the guest artist for Pop Up beginning Tuesday, August 21 through Monday, August 27. Read on to learn more about her inspiration, her process, and her work.
August 21 – August 27
Kristine Biegel is a Maine artist that truly finds inspiration close to home. As a painter, she is completely and totally in love with the landscapes, seascapes, and people of her home state. Quiet in subject matter, her paintings allow the viewer a glimpse into the lives of the strong, independent and proud people of Maine.
From the magnificent rocky coastlines to the peaceful beauty of hanging laundry, Kristine’s paintings are a mix of realistic and whimsical, with a deep overlapping of colors, creating rich and vibrant works of art. Well placed patterns are used to guide the visual journey through the artwork and although no people are ever seen in her paintings there are hints of them throughout giving a sense of their strong and independent nature.
“As someone who loves to travel, I am always looking for inspiration in colors, textures, and landscapes around the world, and I can honestly say that very few places on earth have touched my creative soul as deeply as Maine. There is truly something unique about Maine that inspires and calls to Artists to create.”
Kristine Biegel is the owner of The Creative Child and Adult Arts Studio. She works in the community with artists of all ages and abilities from memory care to preschool and she believes that everyone can make great art and works to empower through the arts, encouraging exploration in the studio and in the community.
Kristine has a BFA in Printmaking and a Masters in Education for Creative Arts. She is a professor of Expressive Arts and recently published her first book called I LOVE YOU TO TEN.
