“Many artists are attracted to art from an early age“, Chris said. “…not me! I took it up much later in life. After flunking art in grade school I waited until 48 years young to let a wild hair take hold and sign up for a watercolor class. I blame (thank) local artists Chris Walling and Laura Gable for getting me started. By the third of ten lessons, I was hooked.”
Since that fateful day in November 2006, Chris’ vibrantly colored, atmospheric watercolors have been selected for exhibit at over 18 juried shows. She achieved national recognition by being published in the January 2010 issue of The Artists Magazine, as one of the winners of their annual competition, Abstract/Experimental category.

“I love working in watercolors because of their fluidity and unpredictability. I often begin a piece with no plan in mind. My best results are when I get turn off my mind and let my spirit out to play.”
“Surprised to be a Butterfly” – Watercolor on Paper – 14 x 11
“I paint vibrant, beautiful watercolors in a style that is fluid and loose – almost abstract. They are DEFINITELY not the watercolors you saw at Grandma’s house.”
“Sacred Geometry” – Watercolor on Paper – 6 x 9
Prints and cards of her artwork will be available for purchase at the winery. Chris is also going to teach Wine and Watercolor classes at the winery. A second party event is planned for the Fall Release in late September.
