Mill Valley, CA

I explore and experiment in a few directions but my two main bodies of work are my Waterscape and Nightscape Series. As well, I collaborate on paintings with dear friend and Partner in Art, Lisa Chipkin. Our series, "The Art of Partnership" will be shown along side our solo works at our shared studio, May 4/5-11-6PM. We feel our collaborative process has helped us grow as artists and as human beings as we are called to slow down and be our "highest selves in relationship" while creating art together. My Waterscape Series continues to be 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 Nightscape Series, I commemorate local and beloved landmark buildings: theatres, dive bars and restaurants that I worry might disappear at any moment.

KRIS RICHARDSON 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.
