About Kristy


Kristy Blackwell is an artist based in Toronto, ON, Canada.

Kristy uses figurative realism to depict her perception of the human condition. Her figures are often rendered in duplicate, suggesting strength alongside vulnerability. The use of gold leaf in some of her oil paintings creates a psychological barrier between the inner mind and the infinite unknown. There is common understanding in these personal images: beauty in sadness and in strength, beauty in vulnerability, and in protection.
