About the Artist:
Growing up in her fatherís art studio and posing for his portrait painting classes, Kristine Fretheim knew at a young age that I would become a professional artist. She received a Bachelor of Science in Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and studied art education at George Peabody College in Nashville, Tennessee. She began painting in watercolor in the mid 1970ís when she moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota from the San Francisco Bay Area. she worked in the field of advertising and graphic design for over 25 years and Iíve taught watercolor at various Twin Cities art centers.
Kristine's paintings are in collections across the midwest, including the Springfield Missouri Art Museum, and her work has been selected for awards in juried exhibits throughout the United States. She received formal invitation to join Watercolor USA Honor Society in 2011. Some of my paintings are featured in Splash 8: Watercolor Discoveries and Splash 11: New Directions by Northlight Books.
You can see Kristine's watercolors at the historic Northrup King Building in the Northeast Arts District of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Set amidst crumbling cobblestone streets and railroad tracks, over 150 artists work in the 4-story, brick warehouse. While the building used to store and process plant seeds, now it is home to the creative process of painters, sculptors and designers. Kristine's studio is open First Thursdays 5 Ė 9 pm, Saturdays noon Ė 4 pm, and by appointment. Visit her website at www.wkristinefretheim.com.
