Kristin Petrillo is a painter based outside of Boston, Massachusetts. She received her BFA in graphic design from Carnegie Mellon University and this background informs her painting practice. In her current work Kristin finds inspiration wandering the mundane back streets of New England seeking to capture moments when light transforms ordinary scenes into something striking and memorable. Working from photographs she takes, Kristin heightens the drama of the images through bold color, strong shadows, and dynamic composition presenting the viewer with the opportunity to reconsider what is often overlooked.
