Kris Parins is a watercolor painter who is originally from Wisconsin, and now shares her time between a studio there and one in Florida.
Her bright, crisp watercolors reflect a love of the natural world as exemplified by both places as well as the play of light and shadow to be found in urban environments and still life objects.
Her approach varies, at times areas of color are abstracted to the point of giving the work a seirgraph-like appearance.
Her website portfolio is divided into ranges of subject matter. In addition, there is a section for prints, and a video in which she talks about her inspiration and process. The Articles section includes articles Parins has written for Watercolor Artist Magazine.
