Kristi Bridgeman

Kristi Bridgeman was born and raised on the west coast of Canada to a family of artists and gardeners. The artist was largely self taught, and has been immersed in the arts her whole life. Kristi is known for her sepia tones and glowing lines, likened to cloisonnism, or stain glass. After discovering quill pen and sepia ink (an alternative to disposable fountain pens) she fell in love with the ethereal west coast effect, and the medium became her trademark.
Kristi's fine art paintings have been featured and awarded in many solo and group shows at venues such as the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Winchester Galleries, Sidney Fine Arts, Robert Bateman Centre, Dales Gallery, Martin Batchelor Gallery, Gordon Smith Gallery, and the Sun Yat Sen Gallery. Recent projects include exhibits in Jasper Region Museum and Musee Heritage in St. Albert, Alberta.
The artist has created over 26 childrens books and has been shortlisted for Governor Generals Award as well as several dozen book awards.
