Kristy Goggio
Oconomowoc, Wisconsin

Kristy Goggio has a morning ritual. She wakes up, pours a cup of coffee, and pulls out her sketchbook to jot down the images she saw in her dreams. Her subconscious inspires her art, which often explores themes of giving and receiving or acceptance. Kristy points out that her paintings are not portraits, but rather characters symbolizing the memories and contemplations we all carry with us. She works on anywhere from three to six paintings at a time, adding and removing layers of color with an electric sander to give each piece an aged look. When she’s not making art Kristy enjoys hiking, gardening, sharing good wine and cooking fabulous meals. Fun fact: Kristy is a hobbyist beekeeper and harvests honey!
