When Art transcends, Beyond, The soul doesn't lie, The depth of beauty....., Frightens those who are afraid, Loves those who love, Why? Why don't you dance with me? I know Beauty, It's ugly, It's passionate, It's real, It's love, It's ours.
In my work, I endeavor to capture human beauty...the kind of beauty that is self-evident, intrinsic, and independent of external factors. My subject matter is mainly the human figure using Oil on Canvas. I use texture, color, and line to induce a powerful human emotion or story. My work is evolving more into the Abstract Expressionism realm because this form, I have seen, impacts more broadly the viewers. I have made a few cry as they stood in front of my pieces (highlight of my career).
My name is Kristi Chaffee, I am a professional artist of 10 years.
A little about me; I’m originally a ski bunny from Salt Lake City, Utah. There I was selling originals and featured in many galleries and local businesses along with being published for my art and writing; I was even featured on a local Fox 13 news slot.
I have also lived in New York, Chicago and Boston attempting to grow my clientele and career. There I had commissions and my art did well.
Because of my travels and hard work ethic my art is now in many parts of the United States including Chicago, Boston, The Sea Coast, New York, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Hawaii, Utah, Washington DC and now Washington State. Internationally my work is owned by private clientele in London and Australia.
In December 2019 I was featured in my first International Art Magazine, “Create Magazine!”
My art means everything to me whether I’m successful or not I will never stop creating.
