NEWS & BIO

Other Mediums

Beyond watercolor paintings, Chris' artistic talents are evident in other mediums. Portland, Oregon caught the "Kows for Kids" fundraising event fever. Following other cities/countries (Switzerland, New York, Chicago, Cape Town-South Africa, etc.) Portland invited 108 top local artists to turn these life-sized blank fiberglass bovines into works of art. After public display, they were auctioned at a gala event benefiting local children's agencies.


Chris transformed her animal into "Kids Kowstruction", sponsored by Walsh Construction. "Kids Kowstruction" is now in its permanent home at the entrance to the Children's Museum in Portland, Oregon.

 

 

 

Chris is an avid gardener, which has also been the inspiration for many award-winning paintings. In July 2009, the Oregonian did a feature article in the Home & Garden section. Click here to see the article
A Watercolorist Uses Her Yard as a Canvas.

She is frequently asked to let garden clubs and fundraising events tour or use her garden, including the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon "Study Weekend." The garden and her related artwork have been featured in numerous books, magazines, on note cards and posters as well as on TV programs. Two of her floral paintings were included in the books Best of Flower Painting I and Best of Flower Painting II. Better Homes and Gardens magazine has featured her garden in two issues and also in the book Garden Color. Her garden is featured in Portland author Barbara Ashmun's book titled Garden Retreats: Creating an Outdoor Sanctuary. She is also in Garden Thoughts: Photographs, Quotes and Inspiration for the Gardener by Gene Sasse. Channel 6 has twice featured her as the Artist in the Garden on their program "Dig It."
