Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Chris gained a B.A.(hons) at Sheffield School of Art and Design where her figurative work, executed mainly in oils on canvas, are of life studies and still life. 
Some paintings were of discarded or broken items where she sought to highlight the intrinsic beauty of something rejected and give it new meaning.
Other pieces encouraged the viewer to see afresh the ‘humdrum and accepted’ with a new perspective and sometimes a sense of humour. We notice this in her studies of women.
