About the Artist
Kristin Vignal is a representational artist whose primary medium is soft pastel. Her paintings reflect a keen observation of the natural world and it is her hope that her paintings reveal to the viewer the small details in life that are often overlooked in our hurried lives. All things, however minute, are worthy of our attention, whether it is as simple as the subtly coloured reflection of a piece of fruit on a vase in a still life painting, or the curve of a cat's whisker in an animal portrait.
Kristin has been influenced artistically by her father and her grandfather, Charles Thorson, both of whom were gifted artists with a great affection for the animal world. That same affection is evidenced in her animal studies and portraits. She has also worked in oils, clay, watercolours and various drawing mediums. Workshops from notable pastel artists ensure growth and evolution during her journey through the art world.
Kristin lives in north central British Columbia and is an Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, and a Signature Member of Pastel Artists of Canada. She also belongs to the Community Arts Council of Prince George and Studio 2880 Artists' Workshop. Please contact Kristin for more information.
