Kristen Neveu carves time into her day with artistic creation while also enjoying spending time in nature. With a background in music, Kristen is a self-taught visual artist with an intuitive approach toward creating textures with acrylics, pencil, and watercolors. As she works, Kristen attempts to capture the unexpected moments found both in nature and musical patterns.
Growing up in both Indiana and Iowa, Kristen graduated from The University of Iowa with a degree in Communication Studies with an emphasis in Cultural Anthropology. After graduation, she moved to Minneapolis and then to Chicago. While in Chicago, Kristen worked for Getty Images as a Photo Researcher and began painting and creating collages in her spare time. With her first show at Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, she began to sell her work online and participated in Chicago art fairs such as Around the Coyote and the Bucktown Arts Festival.
In 2006, Kristen moved to Los Angeles with her husband, Brett Neveu and young daughter, and found a job working for Warner Bros. Studios in the Photo Archive Department. While in Los Angeles, she took part in the Beverly Hills Art Fair (winning 'Best in the Festival') along with selling paintings to individuals and interior designers.
In 2013, her husband accepted a position to teach screenwriting at Northwestern University. Kristen continued painting and started working at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in image acquisition. In late 2020, Kristen and her family moved to Lindenhurst when they purchased a house with a large basement for her studio. Linden Lake is in their backyard and she loves being close to nature.
In addition to being a member of GAA, Kristen is a member of Woman Made Gallery and Evanston Made. Selected exhibitions include Adventureland Gallery (Chicago), The Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Evanston Art Center, James May Gallery (Algoma/Milwaukee), Barnsdall Art Center (Los Angeles) and Woman Made Gallery. She also enjoys exhibiting at local businesses.
