Description It was one of those days in Italy, when you could hardly feel the weather because it was so perfect. Not hot, not cold, not windy, but the gentle warmth of the sunshine just made one tingle with joy. Varenna in Lake Como Italy did not disappoint!
Chris Brandley, Keller Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement Being the daughter of an Air Force pilot, Chris grew up all over the world. Her family dove into the different cultures, and frequented galleries and museums everywhere they went. Chris was particularly drawn to the Impressionist painters, and how they painted everyday life scenes, capturing light and using color in expressive ways. In 1977 her family moved to Holland, where the breath-taking beauty was etched into her memories. The experiences she had all over Europe play an instrumental part in her current work.
One of Chris’s passions is teaching adult and teen workshops in the United States as well as abroad. In 2019 she will conduct workshops in Texas, Florida, as well as 3 retreats in Tuscany, Italy. Ms. Brandley recently returned from teaching a group in South France.
Her work has been used in television backdrops and documentaries, and some of her paintings have been licensed to international companies for use on their products. You can find her most recent license of her painting “First Snow” on Christmas tins filled with popcorn at “Big Lots” stores throughout the United States and Canada.
