Kristy Hoover: Joining River Muse in December 2020...
Kristy (Askins) Hoover is an award winning multi-media artist located in Watertown, NY. She received both her BFA and her MA in Studio Art at SUNY Oswego. Her most recent figurative drawings and ceramic sculptures are intended to inspire emotion and connect with the viewer on a personal, emotional level while relating to past and present social issues. While her pottery work is both decorative and utilitarian, some are slightly obscene yet relatable. Completely opposite from her hyper realistic large scale drawings, she has a large collection of abstract prints and paintings.
Artist Statement- As an artist, I believe it is my duty to use my voice, not only connect with the viewers on an emotional level, but to also give a voice to others through my works.
