Kristen Binning is a Baton Rouge artist who’s been painting with acrylics for years but only recently started putting many mediums on each canvas. On a trip to Italy, visiting St. Mark’s Basilica, she was mesmerized by the way the glass gave the piece a translucence, letting the light diffuse through all the colors. This experience made an impression on her artwork, which now all have a consistent theme that gives the illusion of falling or floating.

“Though the colors and patterns are often bold in abstract canvases, the overall effect of each canvas is calm cohesion. The art we choose for our environment reflects our own experiences and unites us to each other’s journeys. I’m thrilled that others have found a connection in my art.”
