Christie Marie has her own signature way of painting Nature's Reviving Energy. Her favorite subjects for her art are the beauty of Nature found in Hawaii and Lake Tahoe. Christie was born and raised in awe inspiring South Lake Tahoe California/ Nevada in the United States of America. While growing up Christie's family would go on yearly trips to the tropical islands of Hawaii.

From 16-27 yrs old Christie Marie was blessed with an eleven year career as a professional snowboarder 1989-2000. Eight of the years she traveled all over Europe, Japan, Canada, and the United States and ranked in the top eight in the world in Halfpipe. Christie's experiences as a traveling professional athlete have immeasurably enriched her life and art, opening her eyes to the eclectic beauty of the world. During that time Christie took a few college art courses and did a handful of commissioned murals and paintings (one commissioned in Japan). In addition she got the pleasure of designing the graphics for two of her own Pro Signature model snowboards. In the summers from June - September Christie would teach snowboarding at a snowboard camp on the glacier of Mt. Hood Oregon. In the spring and fall of those years she would work in tattoo shops getting to create her art.

At age 27 Christie Marie retired from her snowboard carrier to start a family. She has been blessed with two boys whom she loves being adventurous with while, snowboarding, wake boarding, wake surfing, mountain biking, camping, traveling, etc.

Christie now enjoys making her living as a full time artist. Loving exploring the possibilities that different mediums of art has to offfer has lead Christie to learn many mediums. :) Some of her favorites are Oils, Watercolors, Murals, Airbrushing candy polyurethane's (car paints) on brushed metal, Silk Painting, Sculpting, Photography.

In the past four years she has donated her time to the creation of four large murals. Painting one in South Lake Tahoe,Ca (for the Sierra Recovery Center), and three in Carson City, NV (one for St. Theresa of Avila Church, one for Seeliger Elementary School, and one for a Crossfit Gym/Box).

In 2014 Christie Marie Elder was inducted into the World Legends Hall of Fame for Snowboarding.

Getting to live in the Beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains by Lake Tahoe and getting to travel to some of the most beautiful places in the world has inspired Christie to paint some of the most unique feeling paintings. She is so Thankful for her art fans that she can share her love of Nature that Inspires and Revives the spirit.
