Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Kris Preslan

"Kris Preslan is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society, a signature and life member of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and member of  The American Watercolor Society, Watercolor West  and other national and state organizations.

Her favorite subjects are landscapes and urban scenes, but more importantly, she strives to paint with strong pigments and a wide range of values, often capturing through vibrant realism the memories of places she has been and to which she hopes to return."

“I paint because I have enthusiasm and passion for the process.  Art is my

therapy, my drug of choice”   

Kris Preslan
