Chrissie Grace { I heart art } & a GIVEAWAY

I'm excited to bring back my I heart art series
I love sharing art I admire along with introducing y'all to the artists behind the work. 




Today I'd like you to meet Chrissie Grace of Chrissie Grace Art.


When did you first begin creating art?
I've considered myself an artist since I was a tiny little girl.
I remember even at four and five years of age the feelings I would have when I would create things. A feeling of contentment would come over me. I never feel more "me" than when I'm creating art.



What is your favorite/most sentimental creation you have made? Why?
That is a hard one! I would have to say right now the mural I created in my house is my favorite. I painted it at a time when I felt very stuck creatively, and the mural wasn't planned. I just walked over to the wall one afternoon and started drawing. I painted for four days until it was complete. It's the first thing you see when you walk into our home and I think it makes our guests feel like they are coming into a happy home :)

Isn't this amazing? See more details of the mural here.



Is there a project you've always dreamed of creating? 
What would it be?
Yes! I would love to be commissioned to paint a mural in a children's hospital. I would love the opportunity to paint all things bright and colorful that would inspire children to feel happy and healthy.





Thank you Chrissie for sharing about your work with us!
