The Vintage Painter: Christine Mount Kapp

The Vintage Painter - Award-winning artist, Chrissy Mount Kapp
Award-winning artist, Christine Mount Kapp was born in Minneapolis MN, and grew up in the Apple Valley. She discovered her love of vintage and Americana at a young age while climbing around her grandfather's junk yard outside of Minneapolis.

Much of her portraiture is based on an appreciation of geneaology and history. These interests combined to fuel her vision of painting vintage and Americana themes. 

Chrissy's painting, Beer Can Collection is a still life with a pop-art background. This iconic painting is based on the artist's brother's 1960/70s beer can collection of 500 cans. Chrissy picked eleven beer cans from his collection that she remembers the adults, from her childhood, drinking.

Christine's nostalgic Farm Boys painting features two brothers playing with a stick while a typical red dairy barn sits in the background.

Working The Fields is another one of Chrissy's paintings and shows farmers working the fields while a windmill stands as a silent sentry in the background. This is a framed sepia painting in a custom handcrafted barnwood frame.
