Kris Webster trained as an interior designer and visual artist. She is inspired by architectural structures and features (doors especially) as well as traditional Maritime scenes like lobster boats and cargo ships. Three years ago, Kris began combining new and reclaimed pieces of wood, then painting and carving them to create relief paintings. She finishes her "carved paintings" with additional decorative elements such as handcrafted miniatures as well as small objects handcrafted from metal and wire.
