Kristen Herrington

Artist’s Bio

Halifax, Nova Scotia based artist Kristen Herrington captures her daydreams through the fluid, unpredictable movement of liquid acrylics.  Capturing inspiration from her oceanside surroundings and colourful imagination, Kristen seeks to share with her audience a glimpse of a mystical world beyond that of reality. 

With a background in political philosophy, Kristen studied, what she titled, the artist’s “thing”; the place inside each of us that drives and encourages creativity. Through a series of interviews of Halifax based artists, she sought to explain, from a variety of perspectives, how the “thing” could be described and influenced. Kristen’s most recent works reflect a true interpretation and expression of her own “thing.”

 Each piece is uniquely crafted and cared for, with the intent of providing a whimsical adventure for her audience’s senses.



Artist’s Statement

I believe that art is a vehicle to escape life’s predictability and allows entry into a sea of the unknown and unexpected.  Using primarily fluid acrylic mediums, I am responsible for what seeps outside the lines – this is the place where my true self is comfortable. 

I wish to share an escape, a daydream, an adventure of sorts.  I invite my audience to drift into a playful space, surrounded by wonder and imagination.  My abstract creations are under constant evolution and experiment, much like my days spent on earth.
