Kris Cahill is an abstract artist living in Los Angeles. Originally from Chicago, Kris moved to LA in 2006, with her husband, actor and filmmaker Noel Olken.


An artist all her life, Kris graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA 1982). She studied fashion and textile design, photography, painting, and color. While a student, she discovered and began to develop the unique painting technique she continues to use today: Reverse Painting on Clear Vinyl. She began showing paintings made in this medium in 1990, and has created over 1000 pieces on vinyl since.


Early in 2008, Kris committed to abstract imagery in her work. Since that decision was made, her work has continued to grow and expand in its richness, depth, and color. With “The Agents Of Change”, “Energy”, and “Storms”, among other series, Kris’s themes of spiritual growth, change, freedom, and love flow through each sparkling piece she presents to the viewer, like jewels of truth.

Kris has shown her paintings from coast to coast,

and is represented in many private and corporate collections.
