Creating colorful abstract art that serves to remind you to live your most authentically bold life.
For your good and His glory.
Surprise... they can, and they do. What are yours saying about you?
You live a beautiful life and you deserve to be surrounded by art as exquisite as you are. Art that ignites your soul and serves to remind you that you are called to live a bold life; for your good and His glory.
Kristi Mann is a mixed media, abstract expressionist artist out of Atlanta, Georgia making magic from mess and creating bold art that speaks to the heart. Her paintings come from a deeply emotive, intuitive process and combine watercolors, acrylic paint, oil pastels, charcoal, and various other mediums - depending on where the art takes her.
A recovering people-pleaser who is (hashtag) over boring art, she's on a mission to use original art to help others live a bold, colorful life.
One of the very first memories I have is "painting" the underneath part of my mattress with my mom's lipstick that I had, ahem... "borrowed" from her bathroom when I was around 2 years old. I didn't know it then, hiding under the bed working on my masterpiece, but it's clear to me now that since the beginning, God has been weaving together my story, calling me to create bold, colorful art that speaks to your heart and whispers truth to your soul.
If you're anything like me, you agree that sequins are meant to be worn year-round, a glass of vueve pairs best with a funfetti cupcake, fine china isn't reserved only for special occasions, high heels are always a good idea, and that
As a recovering people-pleaser, I use my art to remind myself and you, my collectors, that just like an original work of art, you are one-of-a-kind and created to be uniquely you in this beautiful world. To walk confidently, clothed in strength and dignity, and surrounded by bold art that speaks to your beautiful heart.
He is the man(n) of my prayers in so many ways and I truly wouldn't be able to do this without him.
He brought the bold, color into my life by loving me for who I am, pushing me to be who God created me to be, constantly encouraging me, and giving me the type of support that makes a girl feel confidently fearless when chasing her dreams.
Blame it on being a southerner, but I'm a sucker for family stories, traditions, and heirlooms.
For our wedding, I surprised Charles by walking down the aisle to his late father's favorite song, "Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles. He had no idea we were incorporating the song, his dad's record player, or this sweet moment into the wedding day. These little moments, these special touches -- they make my heart flutter and inspire creativity in big ways.
I have handwritten notes, birthday cards, and cards from about every holiday or special occasion stored away. I may be a hoarder, but I just can't part with them.
There's something so special about savoring someone taking the time to send some love on ink + paper.
Confession: I am not a natural-born dog lover; BUT -- I am absolutely obsessed with our little Bernedoodle and cannot imagine life without her.
She is the sweetest, snuggle buddy and yet has so much sass and personality.
Let's be honest, she's the star of the show around here and in my studio (and I wouldn't have it any other way)
