Kristi Grussendorf


Kristi Grussendorf lives in North Logan with her husband, Jon (rocket scientist!) & their golden retriever. Their two grown children took a different path & went into medicine. Kristi was encouraged by her parents, taught by her mother who studied art/art education, & has always been identified as an artist. Kristi received her BFA (with some post graduate studies) from the University of Utah with an emphasis in drawing and painting (especially the figure). Before moving to Cache Valley, she was employed by Waterford School in Sandy, UT as a lower school art specialist & currently is on the Utah Division of Arts & Museums teaching roster where she can share what she has learned w/other teachers & continue to create w/children for special projects. She also teaches adults at the Cache Valley Center For the Arts & tries to honor requests from art groups for watercolor workshops and/or painting demonstrations She is a signature member of the Wyoming Watercolor Society, the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, the National Watercolor Society & the Utah Watercolor Society where she just finished her term as president & moves into the delegate position for the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies. She has been a featured artist & has had her work appear in several issues of Watercolor Artist magazine. More recently, she was one of five American Watercolorists featured in Fine Art Connoisseur. She will be traveling to Tucson in April to be part of the annual Plein Air Convention (PACE) faculty. Worthington Gallery in Springdale, Utah represents Kristi & her paintings can be found at Logan Fine Art. Kristi continues to take workshops from the masters in her field, believes in lifelong learning & strives for artistic excellence & growth. Teaching provides an opportunity to pass on lessons learned & to share her passion for the luminous, amazing, challenging & often frustrating medium of watercolor!
