Christie Edling, Artist

Art and creativity have always been a positive outlet for me throughout my life, but deciding to pursue Graphic Design completely changed the game for me. Training in graphic design allowed me to explore the classic arts while studying the creative process and learning how to work through each stage of it. I will always love graphic design, and can talk your ear off about pantone colors and typography, but my artistic goals changed in 2016 when I took my first mosaic class. There is something so beautiful in being able to take something broken and turn it into something magical. I draw a lot of inspiration from nature and my Irish heritage and like to incorporate uncommon canvases in my work. I like to use a very diverse palate of glass colors and incorporate mirror glass whenever I can! I sell my mosaics and other crafts at local craft shows and enjoy teaching whenever I can.
