Kris Miller-Siple had the honor and privilege of teaching art at all levels after graduating from Kutztown University with an Art Education BS Degree. During this time, she experimented with two- and three-dimensional art forms and numerous media before discovering the beauty and luminescence of oil painting. Common and whimsical objects from sentimental experiences are the primary focus of her paintings. Each painting represents a visual study taken one step further by exploring the intricacies of the shadow it casts. Emphasis on the play of light and color in the shadow is a metaphor for looking back in time. Kris' shadow play paintings are meant to inspire and reawaken pleasant memories for the viewer.
