Kristy Chettle

As a California native (b. 1968, Los Angeles, CA), Kristy Chettle’s paintings explore reflective and thought-provoking themes of nature, transformation, and self-empowerment.

Using only her hands and an occasional pallet knife, she paints in multiple layers, sometimes scraping off the paint with her fingers only to reapply a new color later, resulting in a deep texture and raw motion. Occasionally she scrawls her thoughts and emotions into the canvas or uses recycled paper or old screens to catch the next layer of paint enhancing the depth and visual interest of each piece. Each element is thoughtfully considered and placed as a reflection of her life and experiences.

Working primarily with complimentary colors, her paintings are lively and raw with color vibrating throughout from layers deep within the work.
Kristy has been a professional abstract artist for many years. Her artwork hangs in the homes of those who appreciate art that reflects expressive motion and color with thick layers of texture and meaning.
Inspired by some of the greats—Picasso and Van Gogh in particular—she aspires to replicate the depth and life that their works portray.
