About Kristen Colebank

Watercolor lies at the confluence of pigment and paper, a study I’ve been devoted to for several years. Watercolor is an exciting medium to explore because of its unpredictability, yet the painting process must be tempered by careful decisions. The resulting work becomes a balance of these competing energies.

I enjoy finding the extraordinary within the everyday. I am interested in how light and compositional elements interact — how they draw the viewer into a meditative space and what that space can communicate.

Biography

I am primarily a self-taught artist. I was introduced to watercolor in a high school art class and immediately fell in love with the challenging medium. As a Signature member of the West Virginia Watercolor Society, I have had work accepted in regional and national juried exhibitions, have won a Merit Award in the biennial West Virginia Juried Exhibition, and won awards in local and statewide exhibitions.
