I am a Southern CA Artist, residing between San Diego and LA in beautiful Temecula, CA. I specialize in contemporary, abstract, textured, palette knife oil and acrylic paintings. I primarily paint coastal abstracts, abstract florals, angels, trees, landscapes, flowers, cityscapes and seascapes. My contemporary style, combined with my unique palette knife technique, enables me to create modern, original paintings containing depth & texture while maintaining stunning vivid color. I currently sell my artwork internationally to public and private collectors, to interior designers, locally through networking, gallery exhibits & shows, and to private collectors for their homes and business through my website & Etsy site. My unique knife techniques allow me to create beautiful, modern, highly textured, vivid, paintings perfect for a variety of home and office decors. I paint what I like in the style I enjoy, allowing each piece to develop organically as I apply and work layers of paint. I absolutely love painting, - it is my passion - and I am both thrilled and humbled to see others appreciate and enjoy my paintings as much as I love creating them! It brings me great happiness to see my original paintings hung in homes, offices,& public venues -enhancing the spaces they are in. My oil paintings, acrylic paintings, and mixed-media paintings are collected internationally. Artist, Christine Bell Krainock is honored to have had her Original Paintings and Prints featured on, or purchased by respected interior designers, corporations, & media outlets.
