"Pleasant Places" Grandmother Original Art

I love the nests we build, and the stories they tell.

My art is designed to help you tell your story and decorate your nest.

Hi, I'm Christa

I’m a Storyteller & Watercolorist, and I use the vibrancy of watercolor to paint the stories I see in everyday life.

I look for unseen moments with hidden beauty & lasting memories. I look for moments we might forget, but should always remember. I look for the moments no one else sees, but we can’t help but feel them somewhere deep inside. And when I find them, I paint them.

With watercolor first…

However, once the painting is finished, and the colors have dried, I switch over to words to complete the story.

It’s a captivating process for me, and few things thrill me more than finding that my art connects with you, and helps you tell your story.

Thank you for taking the time to hear my story, and I would love to hear yours.

Occasionally, I take commissions, and while I generally have a waiting list… it never hurts to ask.

Please reach out and share your story, and perhaps we can tell it with the magic of watercolor!

"Gently Led" Father Son Print

Each piece of art has it’s own story

Gently Led

Pray that he stays.
That he prays.
and that he leads well,
even when he leads afraid.

And pray that he steps up...
in a world that is telling him to step back

Christa is a dream to work with! She is professional and thorough, and her in-depth art process is unique and exciting. She really cares about getting to know her clients and painting their story.

Christa’s art is feeling on canvas. She painted a picture of our home that went beyond just capturing how it looks on the outside - she somehow managed to capture the joy and warmth I feel when I’m in my home, and the colors she used are gorgeous! I cried happy tears when I unboxed the finished piece.

- Rachel Newberry

Working with Christa on a commissioned piece was an absolute joy! We emailed, exchanged ideas, met via zoom and then reviewed proofs together so that she was sure she captured the spirit of what I desired. Christa’s deep commitment to the emotion and intent of her art exceeded all my expectations as did the final piece! I couldn’t be happier.

I love the notecards I've received from Christa. The artwork is beautiful and of amazing quality. Christa is very responsive, and great to work with. Can't wait to see a new line of cards!

- Lori Russell

Christa painted some notecards for me, and they’re so versatile! I’ve used the same design for thank-you notes, condolences, and birthdays. Without fail, the recipients have commented on how beautiful the cards are, and asked me where they could get some.
