Kris Brewer

Mill Valley, CA

I like to explore and experiment in a few directions but my two main bodies of work are my Waterscapes Series and my Nightscape Series. Waterscapes series-- In this chaotic world, water calms me. Living on the waters edge in Mill Valley, I am a constant observer of the changing colors and moods, the currents, tides, and ripple effects. All resulting in my on-going series of our dynamic bay. My Nightscapes are another series I have been working on for the past few years. Remembering simpler times, and the coziness of the old landmark buildings, I've commemorated hidden gems in pockets of LA, NY, SF, and Marin through paintings and prints.


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.
