Krista Huot was raised in British Columbia, where she studied fine art and traditional animation.
Inspired by storybook illustration, folk art, animation and kitsch, her paintings explore the emotional relevance of archetypes in folklore. She began her practice painting in acrylic, but has since switched to solvent-free walnut oil paints.
Huot’s work has been exhibited in New York and across the west coast, at venues including Gallery 1988, Corey Helford Gallery, LA Municipal Art Gallery, and Compound Gallery.
