Name: Kristi Billmayer
Bio: Kristi Billmayer lives on the windswept prairie of Northern Montana, with her husband, two sons and other family members.
Her work has been honored with numerous Best of Show and Juror's Choice Awards. She received the 2008 People's Choice Award at the C.M. Russell Art Show and Auction in Great Falls, where she exhibits annually. Her work is housed in collections throughout the US and abroad, and she is currently represented by Wyoming Gallery in Jackson Wyoming.
Medium: Pastel. "I work almost exclusively in pastel because the immediacy of the medium allows me to develop a painting rather rapidly while the idea and inspiration are still fresh and exciting. I feel I have only begun to unlock the possibilities of this magical medium."
Subjects: Animals – domestic and wild. No "pet portraits" thank goodness.
Navigation: I find the navigation of this site somewhat confusing – there are galleries within galleries, without clear links to all, and often no link back to the Home page. Some links don’t bring you to the page desired – “More Bison Images” on the Paintings page is a case in point. This artist deserves a better web presence.
Gallery: Available Works; Paintings (Sold)
Image View: Thumbnails only. Unfortunately. There is no indication of the dimensions of the original painting.
