Kris has been a Resident Artist at the Gasworks Art Park since 1995, and is the artist representative on the Gasworks Board. She has taught at both secondary and tertiary level, lectured on Ceramics for nine years at NMIT and currently lectures in Ceramics at RMIT. Kris is represented in notable public collections including Shepparton Art Gallery (Victoria), Parliament House (Canberra) and Obu (Japan) as well as in private collections around the world. She says of her work ‘I am interested in the spiritual and daily ritual of different cultures, the way an object, symbol, mark or shadow and its placement can trigger a transformational response. To interpret the anthropological sentiment behind beliefs, I make contemplative pieces that have a stillness and silence in an increasingly complex world.’
