Biography:

Krista Baetz- Jenkins was raised on Bainbridge Island, near Seattle, USA.
She studied Graphic Design and Fine Arts at The Art Institute of Seattle and
Seattle Central Community College in the mid to late 1980's.

Krista migrated to Adelaide, Australia in 1989 for a brief period before moving to
Brisbane where she earned her Bachelor of Arts (Humanities) at
Griffith University. Her studies focussed on comparative studies in
history and literature and it was there that she became interested in
women's social history.

On her return to Adelaide, she spent the next 10 years working intermittently on her art whilst raising her children and working as a librarian. 

Krista works mainly as a painter in acrylic on canvas, but also does linocut printing, doll-making, etching and screen printing. She is also experienced in sculpting with ferro cement. Krista's core practice is directed towards exhibitions however when her schedule allows, Krista undertakes private commissions.

Subjects that interest Krista are geographical belonging, strong women, outcast women and the connection of the human environment to the natural world.
Krista's work brings a brash and lively element to Richmond Road Studios.


Krista has been a member of Richmond Road Studios since 2008.
