Canadian artist Krista Acheson grew up in a small, very religious, village in northern New Brunswick. Creativity was not highly encouraged, especially anything that could be interpreted as "evil" or twisted. The idea of portraying very private experiences in a symbolic manner became an intriguingly passive way of communicating with people. " As a child, every time I tried to open myself up to express what was going on inside me, I was met by judgment and misunderstanding. Being from such an oppressive environment, you kind of learn the habit of suppression. Painting has become a way to vent my feelings and misdeeds."
