Kristina Ryan

Kristina has been painting and drawing since she was a child and throughout her life, has tried many different forms of art such as oil, acrylic, pencil, soapstone carving, caribou tufting, stained glass, and even antique furniture restoration.
In the past few years Kristina has fallen in love with watercolour and that, as well as tufting, are her main media.

Years ago Kristina learned how to create caribou tufting from a close friend who lived in Churchill and since then has given life to hundreds of tuftings. This art form has made a comeback for her, and she has recently created many more intricate pictures. She supplies tuftings to a retail shop in Churchill, Manitoba, had a showing at the Centennial Concert Hall Piano Nobile and has a tufting in the Manitoba art collection which now hangs in the Manitoba Legislative Building. Her tuftings have made the shortlist at the Manitoba Juried Art Competition for the last two years. She also displays art work at Cre8ery gallery, belongs to Local Colour Art Group, and Manitoba Society of Artists.

Retirement has afforded Kristina more opportunities to enjoy the pleasures of family, art, and even a little leisure time.
