“Presence and intuition are the foundation of my painting process. I am inspired by the energetic connection I feel and the natural beauty I observe in and around my environment.

I hope to create evocative abstract compositions that convey positive energy to enhance a viewer’s surroundings. My practice is complete when I leave nothing off the canvas but the tension between the marks and painted spaces feels profound.”

Chris Brandell


Chris primarily works in oil, but relies on a variety of mixed media to add depth to her two-dimensional surfaces. Her neutral palette reflects her love of the natural world while her gestural style echoes the energy she is exploring.

Her work is widely exhibited and she has been featured in press outlets such as Elle Decor, Creativ, Art of the Times, and The Washington Post.
