Krista Dedrick Lai lives in Philadelphia, where she has been for about 20 years. She makes vividly colorful, high contrast paintings and mixed media pieces about her experiences and observations. Krista has a studio in her home where she also cares for her young son. She always has a long list of projects in her head, a canvas on the wall, and a few side projects happening. Krista often forgets to water her plants or put the laundry in the dryer. But she never forgets to feed or snuggle her son! Krista is excited about where her art is going and fighting every day to take herself seriously.
Krista’s work has been shown in a number of Philadelphia galleries such as Space 1026, the InLiquid Gallery and Practice Gallery, as well as galleries in New Orleans and New Jersey. Recently Krista’s painting “Disparate Voices” was included in the exhibition Into The Light, which was organized and curated by the Bridgette Mayer Gallery. Krista’s work is held in numerous private collections.
