Christa Forrest's Profile
Hi, my name is Christa and I am an artist from Connecticut. I truly love painting the world’s landscape. Using color as a map and foundation and working primarily in pastels and oil, I try to explore unique compositions in nature’s surroundings. I like to showcase and emphasize natural colors as a way of capturing the mood and feeling of a place, rather than depicting a realistic scene.
Earlier in life I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology to pursue the dream of working in the fashion industry. However changes in life found me changing direction and pursuing a career in the financial industry and raising a family. Three years ago, I decided to reawaken my creative self and start painting again. I picked up a box of pastels, registered for a class, and was immediately hooked.
I am a current member of the Connecticut Pastel…
