Kristine Fretheim

All of my senses come into play when I'm painting. Taste, scent, texture, and sound all contribute to seeing. I blend abstraction and realism, using formal elements of painting and design to evoke a felt sense of my subject matter. I am most inspired by the complexity of organic shapes in nature.

I received formal invitation to join the Watercolor USA Honor Society in 2011. My watercolors have been honored in exhibits throughout the United States and are in collections across the Midwest, including the Springfield Art Museum in Springfield, MO.
