Bobby Lee Krajnik uses a rich palette to create vibrant playful landscapes. Her work has been influenced by the history and beauty of the Southwest landscape, and also the iconic and traditional folkart of Mexico. Her current series “Missiones” is based on sanctuaries of the Southwest and Mexico.
“I am drawn to the rich histories, weathered exteriors and hand construction of these special buildings. To me they represent community.”
“I currently live in Scottsdale, Az, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I have been painting for over fifteen years. My current medium is oil. I am inspired by many different styles and various contemporary artists. I love to travel and I find inspiration from my surroundings wherever I may be.”
Whether working in San Miguel de Allende, Mex. or from her Scottsdale, Az. studio, Krajnik seeks to combine her love of travel with her passion for painting. Her cheerful landscapes have a unique personality which seem to speak to the viewer.
“It is very important to me that my work be positive and uplifting to those who view it. I want to bring a smile to peoples faces or just feel a little lighter for having viewed my work. If I can make the world a little brighter then my work is done.”
Bobby Lee has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the Southwest. Her paintings are currently exhibited in galleries in Santa Fe, NM, and in Scottsdale, AZ.
