About the Artist

Hello! My name is Christa, and I'm an artist based in the Pacific Northwest. Much of the inspiration for my work is derived from nature. I especially like to design new creatures or illustrate gentle scenes from the wild. My goal is to create illustrations that instill feelings of wonder and openness with our environment.

As of 2019, I am working on a long-term world-building project called Pollinedrake Tales. This story is heavy with themes of environmental stewardship, centered around the premise of non-human communities reacting to ecological shifts, complete with some whimsy and adventure. You can learn more about the project here.

Outside of personal work, I would love to provide creative assistance with stories, brands, and games, turning vibrant ideas into lively creations.

When Iā€™m not making art, I love baking, animated films, gardening, hiking, collecting new teas, and my best cat friend.
