Educated for a career as a graphic designer, Krista Eubanks is a native Chattanoogan who now spends her time as a full-time painter. Using watercolor, pin and ink, and/or oil, she produces work that unites real world objects and abstract concepts into balanced, sophisticated compositions. She punctuates her bold, elegant imagery of animals, vegetables, or minerals by skillfully incorporating scattered writings and personal expressions into each piece. Eubanks’ creative vision, which she attributes to the honest character of her father, Roy Barton, articulates the organic glamour and quiet strength of
the natural world.
In 2016, Eubanks and her work were highlighted in the magazine Fine Art Connoisseur as part of a feature story entitled “Three to Watch.” Eubanks paintings are held in numerous private collections, have been included in solo and group exhibitions, and have been included for many years in the Live Auction at Spectrum, the Hunter Museum of American Arts’ annual fundraising gala.
