Kristy (Askins) Hoover

Kristy (Askins) Hoover is an award winning multi-media artist located in Watertown NY.

Her most recent figurative drawings and ceramic sculptures are intended to inspire emotion and connect the viewer on a personal emotional level while relating to past and present social issues. While her pottery work is both decorative and utilitarian, some are slightly obscene yet relatable. Completely opposite from her hyper realistic large scale drawings , she has a large collection of absttract prints and paintings.

Artist Statement: "As an artist I believe it is my duty to use my voice, not only to connect with the viewers on an emotional level, but to also give a voice to others through my works."
