Krispen Spencer
Denton, Texas

Krispen Spencer sees the process of making art as more than simply putting paint on a canvas. “Painting, for me, is not only a form of expression, but also one of transformation,” she explains. Krispen places color front and center in her dynamic works. She uses a technique of pouring fluid acrylics to create her paintings, a method that began during her MFA studies. Her staccato style illustrates the pulse of eternity as well as the ethereal and powerful qualities of primordial beginnings: the inception of a storm, the budding of a flower, or the genesis of a star. When she’s not painting, she wishes she could be painting. She currently lives in Kerrville, Texas and occasionally teaches workshops on the side. Fun fact: many of her paints are five feet tall, her actual height. If she’s transporting them in the wind, she almost takes off!

What a blessing to have, " Miracles" on my wall ! It is beautifully organic and ethereal and draws me in every time I look at it.

I love your art work! I recently began "arting" & painting again for peace of mind. I sold several & find myself diving deeper.

Artwork Details

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
