Originally from St. Louis, Cris has studied drawing and painting from the age of 12. Her early art education came from private art instructors and workshops at Washington University and the St. Louis Art Museum.  She later studied Fine Arts and Art Education at the University of Kansas.

Her appreciation for the uniqueness of people, as well as nature, is conveyed in each portrait or landscape painting. Cris has a constant fascination with solving the problems of light, composition, and color in each painting and drawing endeavor.
