My name is Krista Lord. I am an artist living in Maine in a house with a big backyard and a garden that I don’t get out into enough. I don’t currently have a studio space, or access to a press, so I make do in a corner of my dining room. I am primarily a painter and printmaker, though I dabble with a bit of everything from time to time. I am also a wife, Mom, part-time librarian, introverted wild violet, and cat person. In the morning, I crave complete silence while I drink coffee and read or work in my sketchbook. Instead, I have two small children who like to make a lot of noise at me and want my attention.
My art comes from my inner world. Usually, things come to me while I am performing mindless tasks, like driving or washing dishes.
