Short Bio: I draw for relaxation and meditation and love bringing joy and special memories to people with my drawing subjects.

Art Interest: Drawing

Full Bio:  Christy is originally from Columbus/Westerville, OH and currently lives in Hilliard, OH. For 20 years she lived in Southern Maine, where her professional career in drawing started, but has been drawing since she was introduced to a pencil at a very young age. She moved back to Ohio the summer of 2018, residing in Hilliard. Christy is selftaught and her specialty mediums are ink, colored pencil and graphite pencil.

Christy is known as the ‘Angel Artist’. She has always been fascinated by the supernatural spirituality of angels. She especially likes angels carved in stone as headstones in cemeteries. She gets her inspiration from these beautiful sculptures of art and how they weather throughout the years with the deterioration of the stone and the moss that grows on these headstones. These stones are pieces of art that continuously change year after year. Christy loves to capture the beauty of these headstones on paper from new to the aging of old. She mainly draws on white paper, but enjoys working on black paper to show depth and variety with white colored pencil and white ink. She will sometimes add metallic ink to her white colored pencil drawings on black paper to give her drawings a unique look.

Christy’s variety of work has been displayed in numerous galleries and exhibitions throughout Southern Maine & New Hampshire and The Alice-Rice Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA. She also Co-Owned VIBE Art Gallery in Somersworth, NH. Her most recent accomplishments while being back in Ohio, were winning 3rd place in the Dublin Area Art league’s “Dublin Irish Show” in August entering as a non-member and winning 1st place at the DAAL 2018 Fall Show as a new DAAL member. Christy also works on commission and has drawn many people/entertainers and pet/animal portraits throughout her career.
