Kristan Skinner, known in the arts community as Kristan Five, has a body of work stretching back nearly 30 years. Most recently, she has created a wide-ranging portfolio of commissioned pieces for a local Fortune 500 client. She has also completed a number of residential commissions for private homes throughout North Carolina and the east coast. In addition, her paintings are included in numerous private collections. Kristan Five summarizes her abstract, color-based work – heavily influenced by time spent with an international environmental design firm as well as travels throughout northern Europe – as follows: “In theory, my work is inspired by our earth’s landscape. Globally, much of nature shares the intrinsic beauty of organic lines, textures and color with the human contribution of synthetic elements.”
