Kris Brewer

Mill Valley, CA

I am currently showing two bodies of artwork; my Waterscape Series and my Nightscape Series. My Waterscape Series was born of studying the ocean daily. Creating these works has become a practice of letting go, just flowing. Asking the painting what it needs from me now. A river flowing, a reflection shimmering, ripples effecting eternity. With my Nightscapes Series, I am commemorating iconic local landmarks--dive bars, theaters, and beloved Bay Area haunts, for fear they might just disappear. You can contact me at krisbrewerart.com for more information. Thank you for your interest!

KRIS BREWER

I was born and raised in the town of Lake Arrowhead, in the mountains of Southern California. 
I have been a sculptor, painter and writer since childhood, exhibiting paintings, prints and sculptural work in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Marin for over 25 years.
