Chrysanthe Kapuranis explores the duality of forms, often by merging abstract mark making with garden materials as tools to beautiful mark making and meaningful life experiences. She begins connecting seemingly disparate concepts through research, examining nature, and photography. Many of her illustrations include embroidery for emphasis and texture and hidden messages within a painting to bring further meaning. 

“Art is love and the pursuit of discovery. Art is harmony and balance. Art is realizing the divine symmetry and natural beauty of the world that we all live in. It is through the sharing of art that I hope to encourage your own pursuit of discovery and harmony.”

Chrysanthe Kapuranis is a graphic designer in the Division of Human Resources at the University of Arizona. Chrys has a bachelor’s degree in Design Science from Arizona State University and is pursuing a degree at the University of Arizona in Fine Arts, Studio Art. She also grows an organic vegetable garden for sustainable living practices and the pathway to good health and well being.
