About Me

I'M CANDI KLOVERSTROM

Many early influences framed my perception of art. However, painting intrigued me as far back as kindergarten. Later it was my seventh-grade art instructor’s encouragement. When I learned how to draw a portrait in tenth grade, seeds of hope began taking root. November 22, 1979 that hope deepened when a neighbor prayed with me to commit my life to Jesus. Today as a creative person I feel a special connection to my incredibly creative God. At first I didn’t really think about how art fit into my life I was so busy raising young children. But as time went on, I began thinking about who God created me to be. Art began playing an important role as I moved through life.

Today I understand the path I’ve traveled; He has been leading all along. The messages I convey are about hope; my heart’s cry is passing on what is an anchor in my life. Many of these truths are seen in my artwork. In the portrait facial expressions are incredibly important, and I find attention to details and tonal values brings the personality to the surface. People are incredibly interesting and each one is equipped with a unique God-given personality. What I enjoy most is the connection I have with each person. By the time I’m done, I had an experience as I discover the uniqueness of each individual.

As a Christian artist I have a lot to say about mounting chaos around the world. Every painting is an opportunity to share my heart. My ideas come from various places: Biblical truths, conversations with friends, or interesting people. As my project develops as I think through initial layout and composition. Early on I ask, “What is the central message I need for this art? How can I convey it in a positive way that is different and excites the viewer?” An identifying mark of my work is the research I do to deliver accurate messages. I spend a lot of time checking Biblical accuracy as well as talking with those familiar with Biblical truths.There are many influences in an artist’s life. But for me, as my faith evolved and deepened, so did the depth of my art. 

I studied human anatomy at Denver General Hospital school for X-ray Techs. Later I received a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree from the University of Colorado, Denver Center, focusing on drawing, life-drawing, painting in oils and took art classes from Rocky Mountain School of Art and Design, Denver. I also studied watercolor from Betty Demauree and I'm still using some techniques today in my oils. I love watching YouTube artist like Mark Carver with his portrait classes. He is a nationally acclaimed artist known for his portraits of presidents. I also follow Andrew Tischler, an international artist known for his realism of portraits and landscapes. Today I work exclusively in oils blending realism and impressionism. My favorite subjects are portraits and the human figure. But I often veer off to a landscape or a floral.

Steve and Norma Faust—“I have collected Candi Kloverstrom’s paintings since her early days. I enjoy the warmth and depth of her work. My wife and I also have portraits of each of us and find them to be very lifelike and accurate. People come into our home and compliment us on one or more of her works we have hanging in the house. I enjoy the portraits, but my favorite are her nature scenes. I also have one of her early career watercolors that is so lifelike, people walk up to it and ask if it’s really a painting. I highly recommend a person shopping for quality artwork to examine and compare her work to others you may be considering. Thank you Candi for the many years of enjoyment.” 

Prayer partner, Carol Werhman—“It has been such a blessing to now have Candi and her gift of painting woven into my life’s journey. Each of her many canvases that I have viewed has a unique quality, beauty, and truth being told. As her friend and prayer partner I am keenly aware of her absolute dedication to accuracy. I am aware of the amount of research often invested prior to her picking up a brush. This commitment to excellence and her gift of capturing the depth and light in a subject’s eyes makes her work so alive with personality, detail, and emotion. Her Biblical pieces in particular, often inclusive of Jesus, offer me an avenue to feel His heart and His presence, to be drawn. I am prompted to stop and remember His intense thoughts toward me, to examine my day’s endeavors, and thank Him for providing me with mercy and abundant life.”
