Our program speaker is the well known artist, Kristine Allphin Brakenhoff from Hastings, NE.
Kristine's education and experience in illustration and composition bring an original style, sensitivity, and craftsmanship to her batik work. Although Batik is a challenging medium, Kristine's goal and purpose as an artist are to push the limits to a level of fine art. She utilizes her knowledge of illustration, design and experimentation of non-traditional batik materials to produce many complicated color blends and combinations.
Kristine has won numerous awards and exhibitions including, Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art, Stuhr Museum, Nebraska Art's Council, Fred Simon Gallery, Longwell Museum of Art and the Museum of Nebraska Art. She was featured in Nebraska Life Magazine and the April 2016 issue of Western Art and Architecture Magazine as an Emerging Artist To Watch. Her work has been purchased for use on Hollywood movie sets, corporations, hospitals and private collectors as far away as Canada and Sri Lanka.
