Krys Pettit is an artist who loves and lives art.  Her work covers the range of subject matter from still life to figurative. Her passion is the observation of the hidden but extraordinary moments in life.  She is also known for her watercolor house portraits and commissions.  

Krys works with two very distinct and separate mediums – oil paint and watercolor paint.  She is inspired by the vibrant transparency of watercolor, the delicacy and lyricism and how it reacts with paper and water. She embraces the classical aspects of oil painting and the visceral way textures and strong brush strokes interact with colors, light and dark, to create a unique image.

Krys’s work is in various private collections throughout the country.  Her art has been chosen for poster art for national art festivals, and she has exhibited in numerous local and regional venues and juried competitions.  She has been honored to receive awards in online, local and regional exhibits.

When not working hard in her studio Krys likes to spend her time creating in another art form -- unique hand-made artisan chocolate truffles.


" I WOULD LIKE TO PAINT THE WAY A BIRD SINGS."  CLAUDE MONET

​​How do you capture a moment in time -- light, color, shadows? How do you express the fragrance of a blooming garden, summer heat on the water, cold crispness of a winter morning? I use my art to tell a story and to capture these unique moments.  I paint memories, wonderful images that have left me with a sense of beauty, serenity and delight. 

I work in watercolor and oil, preferring the traditional process of these mediums.  

I believe watercolor captures the energy and immediacy of a moment, whereas oil allows me to convey a depth and traditional approach to some of my subjects.

​I paint because I love to.  Sharing my work with my viewers and collectors is part of the process .  This is what continues to lead me on the journey of my creative life.
