About Chris

Chris seeks to interpret the complexity of the human condition while revealing her fundamental desire to explore color. Her work is mostly large scale mixed media paintings, and her tools include custom-made knives and large-format brushes. Chris'  paintings have been exhibited on both the East and West Coasts, and reside in many private collections.  

Born and raised in New Rochelle, New York, Chris moved to the Washington, DC metropolitan area in the 70's with her family. Her artistic journey was initiated late in life and inspired by her friend, Joanna Abizaid of Cline Rose Design. In 2014, Chris was inducted into the National Association of Women Artists. Working and living in the local area for more than 25 years, Chris can be found happily painting the hours away in her Vienna, Virginia studio.
