A life-long artist, self-taught artist Kristen Neveu paints to clear
her head and calm anxiety.
She experiments and combines layers of
acrylic paint, watercolor, oil pastel, pencil and paper.
Americana, nostalgia, and tributes to nature are threaded into
the work, creating patterned abstract storybooks reminiscent of
maps and the flow of musical patterns.
Kristen was born in West Point, NY, when her dad was in the
Army’s military academy band. Raised in Indiana and Iowa, she
grew up playing piano, clarinet and singing. She graduated
from The University of Iowa. Since college, she’s
lived in Minneapolis, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Evanston, IL.
Selected gallery exhibitions include James May Gallery, The
Saw Room @ The Alley Gallery, Swell Gallery, Polvo,
Adventureland Gallery, Judith Racht Gallery, The Fort Wayne
Museum of Art, Barnsdall Art Gallery, and Woman
Kristen’s paintings are in the collections of many art lovers.
Patrons include actor Michael Shannon, comedian Joel McHale,
and playwright Rebecca Gilman
