Kristen Olson Stone

Doug Swinton Profile
   

Oil |Gouache | Acrylic | Watercolor

Ever inspired by nature, I love painting on location at home and abroad as well as creating large-scale, detailed studio paintings with multiple layers of paint. My artwork is a blend of realism and impressionism, the majority of my work is coastal landscapes, marine life paintings and garden paintings. Having recently returned from living in New Zealand for almost 3 years, I’m a multi-award winning artist, recently featured in Plein Air Magazine and The New Zealand Artist Magazine. I endeavor to paint each piece in a completely unique way from start to finish. When viewed at a close distance, the colors and texture are beautiful and interesting in their own abstract way, when viewed from a further distance, the shapes, colors and brushstrokes magically come together to reveal the painting’s subject. Teaching fine art for over 20 years, I’ve developed a method of explaining how to paint and have many lessons available online.
