As a former mathematics teacher, the logarithmic spiral, of which the nautilus is an example, has always fascinated Kristine Kainer. "It was only a matter of time before I painted the natural beauty of this sea creature's magnificent outer shell," she says.

Getting to Know Kristine

For Kristine Kainer, recreating her emotional attachments to subject matter, whether a still-life or landscape, is paramount. Her goal is to emotionally trigger a response in the viewer. But, "this response does not need to replicate my own feelings; instead, I hope to make the viewer pause for a moment, reflect upon, then respond to my work in a personal, meaningful way."
