Cris Franchevich is a visual artist and architect originally from Brazil and living in Minneapolis since the year 2000 with her husband and their two daughters.
An avid traveler, Cris sees the city with the eyes of an "andarilho", a Portuguese word meaning the wanderer, the explorer discovering new territory.
Cris navigates between the realm of figurative and abstract work. What begins as watercolor sketches painted on-site, develops into mixed media paintings in studio.
Her art is made similar to how her journeys are made; walking to step away from the comfort zone of the studio and seeking new experiences.
Cris Franchevich teaches watercolor workshops locally and abroad.
