Chrissy is a Pitt Alumna with a Bachelor's of Arts and Sciences in Studio Arts. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Chrissy also lived near Nuremburg, Germany between 2009 and 2015 studying both art and music, and has now relocated to the Youngstown, OH area. Living in Germany provided Chrissy with a new breadth of experiences ranging from learning about cultural differences to gaining new perspectives on the world. As a painter, and creator within multiple different mediums, she likes to explore different healing methods through creation. She finds that it is of great importance, that no matter where you are in your life, you find ways to feel at peace. A great majority of her work also features inspirations taken directly from nature, and other organic materials, as she considers the preservation of mother nature itself of utmost importance. Because of this she even includes these materials within her craft, and is constantly trying to find new methods of reusing and recycling them within her work, whether that means painting on found objects, or utilizing them otherwise.
