About the Artist

      After studies at the Rhode Island School of

Design and Lyme Academy of Fine Art, followed

by years of plein-air painting, Chris Karpinksi's

works have become non-objective allusions to

places or feelings remembered.


     Created in the moment, with diverse methods

of paint application, each mark leads to the next

and the process takes over.  There is much

scraping and sanding with unintended results

and surprises.  Through color, light, texture and

the inspiration of nature's beauty, Karpinski

hopes to generate a sense of serenity and



     Her paintings may be found at the Essex and

Lyme Art Associations, Artisan Framing and

Gallery in Niantic CT, Essex Coffee and Tea

Company in Essex CT, and in numerous private

and corporate collections here and abroad.
