"Kristine created a beautiful painting for the Spectrum Center. We wanted to feature some abstract art that would capture the energy of our work and the Spectrum Center it was a bonus that she was also an alum with a personal connection to our office and we got exactly that. She combined several pictures in a layering technique that was meaningful to her around protesting Prop 8 in California and finding comfort within the LGBT community. We have displayed the 4'x4' painting in our office for a few months: people constantly stop to look at it, but almost everyone sees something different. We love what the painting brings to our space."
