Krista Huot is a 28 years old very talented artist that lives in Montreal - Canada. She grew up in a small forestry area in northern British Columbia and there was when she started her drawings and also that was where she found some kind of mystical inspiration. Krista studied 2 years of fine arts and art history at Thompson Rivers University and after that went to Animation School at Capilano College where she says she found exactly what she wanted, which was something challenging, intense and focused on developing a solid foundation of technical skills. Krista already worked with illustration and digital paintings but she really loves working in acrylic on birch because they are solid, and acrylic dries quickly so she can build up many layers of colors.
I found Krista's work during my researches for our Daily Inspiration post and I just fell in love by it. Her paintings are just stunning!! The colors, the lines, the expressions of the characters, the atmosphere of the scene... all that makes us feel we are in another dimension, a fairy tale maybe. :)
As the quote from her myspace profile:
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily...life is but a dream.
Let me say that I had a hard time picking the images to show here since I loved all of them... so I really wish you enjoy the ones we will feature here! ;)
