Hi, I'm Crisynda (I like it that my mother made up my name). Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me.
My world is and has been filled with many interests and passions. Some of them are traveling to see how others live, homemaking to provide a comfortable and delightful nest for my family, gardening to watch new life being created which seems like a miracle each time, a career in nursing that immensely enriched my soul and humbled me, volleyball to feel powerful and laugh at myself and sailing to feel free. I cherish my family and friends who bring me the greatest reason to love, laugh and learn. All of these experiences I now want to infuse into my paintings.
In 2014, I left my nursing career behind to more fully embrace painting regularly and to slow life down some. After spending some months to catch up on life, a good portion of every day now is invested in "my art" with the expectation that I will make more valuable works that will be appreciated by an ever growing audience.
My media has always been watercolor but this year (2016) I am trying new mediums. I am proud to have won multiple ribbons at the San Clemente Art Association over the last few years.
You are invited to share what moves you about my paintings. Leaving a comment educates and delights me. And of course, you can have one of your own.
Have a beautiful day!
