Creatives That Rock: Lexisworks the Art of Lexis Krieg

Mixed media collages of found paper and layers of paint are trademarks of Lexis Krieg's bright and charming style. She draws inspiration from the world around especially from the mountains. "I go through this cycle of paper and paint several times or just once, until it feels right," says Lexis.

Lexis is a part-time fine artist, part-time graphic artist, and full-time creative! You can see a strong graphic sensibility in her layout and use of typography in her paintings. The colors of the canvas boldly showcase words of encouragement and wisdom topped off with perfecting finishing touches. "I finish my work with text, illustration and accent bits, like rick-rack and fabric," says Lexis

"Let the Beauty" is a favorite of her's that she created after spending time at a local art retreat. "I've been inspired by the mountains here in Colorado for so long. This piece, is one of many where I explored using my drawn trees and painted mountains. I'm particularly fond of this piece and have found a permanent home for it in my dining room. I also really love the sentiment of this Rumi quote."

You can find her work at local craft fairs in Denver, CO such as The Horseshoe Craft and Flea Market, Firefly Market, and the Sugar Plum Bazaar. She is also a featured artist in the upcoming Denver RAW Artist Pixels Showcase on January 30th! "I was anxious about applying to an 'art' event. But I took a deep breath and applied knowing it would be a great opportunity for a new audience to see my work."

Tickets to the upcoming RAW Artist Pixels Showcase must be purchased before the event to support her showcase entry fee. Please purchase your $15 tickets online at to credit her the ticket sale.

Her work reminds me of the iconic words of Steven Tyler, "life's a journey not a destination." Lexis's art combines both life's journeys and destinations in ways that are truly unique, truly radiant, and truly inspiring.
