About

Creative Souls Art - A Journey Through Art and Creativity

My name is Christa. I have been painting pretty much all of my life but decided about seven years ago to take this creative thing to a new level. I have traveled all over to capture the world’s landscape and share these passions through my art. Exploring the World’s Landscape with Color is my motto – I want to share with my viewers a fun, exciting and colorful aspect of nature, still life and everyday life through my paintings. While most of the paintings on this site are acrylic and oil, I also enjoy working with pastels and whatever else sparks my creativity at the time.

A Self Taught artist (actually not quite) I have studied and traveled with a lot of great artists and teachers and have gotten an education worth millions through their knowledge.

On December 31st, 2014 I decided to take a leap. You see, I spent the last 20 years in a career in finance. My creative soul was too great to keep it hidden inside - so I decided to let the cubicle go and pursue my true passion. Today, I am a full time artist, teacher, passion lover, and spreader of creativity! The artwork in this shop is apart of this journey. Watch me as I create, experiment, fail and succeed. I am happy I can share this with you.

FAQs
What inspires you?
Most of the paintings in my shop are mixed media, acrylic and oil. I do enjoy working in pastel as well. I love to take photos from my phone or Nikon camera everywhere I go. I am always finding a scene or landscape that tickles my fancy. I am also inspired by my yoga and meditation practice and exhibit this passion through my buddha and goddesses. Whatever inspires me, I quickly get it down in my journal or sketchbook. I am starting to try new things like abstract and mixed media as well as focusing on my landscapes.

What if I have a scene that I would love for you to paint?
Yeah!!!! - Just send me a message and we can work it out. I would need a really good photo as well.

Are you a full time artist?
Oh yesssss!!! as of December 31st, 2014 - I took a leap of faith, let go of my 20 year career in finance and pursued by true passion.

Welcome to Creative Souls Art

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look! I am so excited to share with you my artwork.

My artwork is inspired by the scenes and landscapes I have seen throughout my travels as an artist. I like to share these memories with you and hope to capture a distant or future memory from my viewer. Maybe you were there or have dreamed to be there at some point in time.... Maybe I can inspire the feelings and memories I felt with you through my art......

I create acrylic, oil and pastel artwork as well as limited edition fine art prints. Make my shop a favorite to keep up to date on new artwork and prints I have posted and please convo me with questions or comments - I would love to hear from you!

Additional policies and FAQs
I try my best to take the most accurate photo possible of my artwork. I usually photograph using natural light and sometime do touchups in photoshop to make sure the photo is true to the original. However, I cannot control the various settings that your computer monitor may have. Because of this, the colors maybe slightly different from the actual product.

I happily take custom orders and commissions - just ask me!!!
