Artist of the Month
The walls of Burlap and Bean are currently
featuring the work of Christa Krumbhaar.
Mixed media collage, acrylic paintings and pastels are all
represented in this current body of work at Burlap and Bean.
In her mixed media collages she uses reclaimed materials and

Her non-representational acrylic paintings and pastels are tranquil

incorporate various printing techniques to produce depth by way
of texture, which various materials and articles produce.
Christa explains “I find the essence of abstract simplicity
captivating! The visual quality of a surface created by graphic
shapes, reoccurrence of patterns, pigment diversities as they
dance together and the composition of these elements awakens
