Kris Stokman is a local emerging artist whose interest lies in exploring realism through his paintings, as well as the fantasy genre of other worlds and mythical creatures.
Kris works primarily in water mixable oils on canvas and is also developing skills in digital media, creating his own Dungeons and Dragons characters.
Kris is currently exploring all aspects of photography, especially capturing wildlife in their natural habitat. He is using these images as inspiration for future paintings on canvas in both real and imagined landscapes.
