Kristian Spreen was raised in Brampton, Ontario. She recently graduated from Sheridan College in the Craft and Design Program. Before finding the medium of glass, Kristian was formally trained in painting and drawing. Prior to pursuing her artistic career, Kristian received an Honours Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto, where she studied psychology, biology, and physiology.
Kristian has always been enthusiastic about new experiences. This drives her to seek out different ways of working with glass. By using a combination of organic and geometric elements Kristian makes work that achieves a balance between controlled and spontaneous expression. Her work reflects tendency to look for solutions in situations involving seemingly opposing elements.
Kristian is currently a resident artist at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, Ontario.
