Artist Statement:

Kristen Davis works equally with digital and traditional illustration, often bringing her subtle painterly touch to her digital pieces. She specializes in narrative based works, including character and landscape design, and concept art. Her art is crafted through atmosphere and storytelling, and while her color palette is often limited, the worlds where her characters exist are steeped in a rich air of mystery and pending adventure. She works primarily with oil paint, graphite, printmaking techniques, and digital media.
