"A representational artist will develop the ability to accurately observe and record the minute details of the chosen subject onto canvas. As such, during the painting process I immerse myself in realizing and translating these details. If the end result enables the viewer to discover what they might otherwise have passed by, then my painting is a success." ~ Kristin Vignal
ABOUT KRISTIN VIGNAL
Alberta artist Kristin Vignal is a representational painter whose primary medium is soft pastel. She works mainly in studio with her preferred subjects including still-lifes, figures and animals. 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 clay, acrylics and various drawing mediums, and is grateful for the opportunities to continue to explore and evolve in her artistic journey through workshops and art education.
Kristin is a member of Pastel Artists of Canada and has achieved PAC's Master Pastellist Signature designation.
