Chris is an abstract artist. Some of her paintings are informed by aging stone structures — walls, buildings, bridges and other eroding objects. She sees things in the stone surface — an abstract landscape, atmospheres, other worlds. Her treescape paintings are inspired by the stark lines and texture of leafless trees in the winter. And her most recent work is based on the peaceful, yet rugged terrain of Scotland’s Outer Hebrides isles.
