Kris Strell art is a one woman sole endeavor by artist Kristine Falconer Strell. Her soul aim and focus with her art is to portray the inner workings of transformations. Currently she attempts this task by utilizing raptors, bird flight, wings, sky, and their multi-faceted soaring passages.
Kris Strell identifies, specifically, with the golden eagle. The artist lives on a small, semi-remote island in the San Juan Islands archipelago in Washington State located near the Canadian border. She works in her treetop tower studio amongst towering cedar and Douglas fir trees in the company of bald eagles, who nest and soar close by. The artist’s background includes years in the intaglio printmaking and platemaking fine art business, commercial color mural photography darkroom printing, and retailing hand spun, hand dyed, and hand knit garments. Her roots began in Michigan. She has experienced many years of traveling including extensive hiking trips in the Himalayas,
Cascades, Rockies, the Yucatan, and the 4 Corners of the United States. Recent trips are mostly island-hopping camping-sailing excursions with sailor & husband, Joe, in their 14 ft. sailboat.
