Kristin Fardy paints from her home studio in Ottawa, Canada, and is inspired by nature, human faces, and explorations of identity. She paints in a variety of styles, all of which seem to wreak havoc on her paintbrushes.
Kristin is an emerging artist who, after dabbling sporadically in other media over the years, currently paints in acrylics on wood panels. Her paintings draw from her own experiences, including places visited, trees spotted on local hikes, and people who have made an impression on her, as well as the occasional image found while scrolling the internet that catches Kristin’s fancy and calls out to her to paint it.
Kristin is a queer, genderqueer woman whose work is inevitably informed by this experience (the evidence of which is more apparent in some works than others).
She supports local independent art supply shops when purchasing her materials and replacing her battered brushes.
Works are carefully packaged for shipping in reused packaging materials to reduce the environmental footprint associated with getting Kristin’s work safely to buyers. You may see the occasional Amazon logo in the packaging of your purchases from Kristin’s shop, but you can feel good about knowing that waste is minimized in this way and rest assured that her neighbours won’t miss the cardboard scavenged from their recycling bins!
