About Kristin

 

Kristin Fardy paints from her home studio in Ottawa, Canada, and is inspired by human faces, popular culture, and explorations of identity. She loves creating artwork, but her favourite thing to make is to make the viewer laugh, smile, or experience a sense of surprise. Kristin's paintings often present familiar subjects in unfamiliar contexts, always bringing something unexpected to her work.

After dabbling sporadically in other media over the years, Kristin currently paints in acrylics on wood panel and occasionally canvas. 

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 and independent art supply shops when purchasing her materials and replacing her battered brushes.
