"I love, love, looooove my portrait of my dog! She was able to capture his personality so well! There was always really good communication when it came to asking what I wanted done, picking the colors, and was neat to see all the stages of the portrait! Would definitely recommend to anyone!"
-Amanda W. Owner of original painting Reggie
"You have given me back a treasured memory of my beloved bunnies, some long gone, some more recently passed. I loved them so, and having their sweet faces now with me again brought tears to my eyes.
The painting is so beautiful and much more gorgeous in person than in the pics you sent along the way. I thank you, thank you, thank you. "
-Susan A. Owner of original painting Bunny Memorial
"Chris is an extremely talented artist who captured my cats' personalities perfectly, even though she never met them! Her attention to detail regarding my descriptions of their quirks, and her translation of these unique features into portrayals on canvas far exceeded my expectations. She provided many opportunities for review/feedback sessions along the way, to make sure that I would be satisfied with the end result, which I absolutely am! On top of this, she is very speedy, efficient and affordable. My pets are like my children and Chris has helped me memorialize them in a unique and precious way. I highly recommend working with her if you have the chance!"

Although born and raised in the gateway city of St. Louis, Kansas City is what I call home. Creating has always been an integral part of how I perceive life and my journey through it.
I found my passion with a lengthy teaching career in Gardner, Kansas. In the spring of 2017, however, I ultimately discovered I could no longer treat my competing passion for Art as a hobby.
My career now is to create acrylic paintings that may bring joy to you and others. I have a great love of animals and enjoy creating animal portraits by commission.
When not painting, I serve as a volunteer member of the Board of Directors for my local non-profit cat rescue, Another Chance Cat Rescue.
I’m a good listener whose only agenda is to create a painting you and your loved ones can cherish through the years to come. I work from photographs and am in regular communication with my clients in pursuit of their satisfaction. I hope you enjoy my work and consider it for your home.
