Primarily a self taught artist, Christy's creativity was encouraged by her mother, an artist also. There was always artistic activities at home, growing up. She found herself most interested in painting-- all mediums, but her most recent favorite is silk. She describes her work as "Overtones of Fantasy and Wonder...Vaguely Mysterious Landscapes of Nature...Usage of Colors and Movement to Portray Moods and Feeling." She contributes her silk painting style to experiences with watercolors, its washes and dreamy effects. Christy has exhibited in various shows and galleries throughout Montana, Minnesota, Santa Fe, Florida, New York, Mexico, Greece, and England. She has been commissioned for paintings of landscapes, homes, florals, portraits, pet portraits and wearables. Her latest endeavor has been a line of wearables: scarves, sarongs, tops, kimonos, mens ties and cumberbunds; at shops, festivals, shows and commissions. Christy's artwork is uniquely her own and represents life experiences and personal sentiment.
