A Wonderful Artist
I would like to introduce the art of my future daughter-in-law, Christine Fredendall. She is a recent graduate of the University of Michigan's School of Art & Design. She was born in Port Huron, Michigan, where she met my son Matthew in a high school art class. Ever since we've known her, Chrissy has always given us gorgeous handmade cards for birthdays, holidays, and thank yous. While Christine (Chrissy, as we call her) mainly focuses on hand-carved print-making, she is also a skilled painter, illustrator, and writer. For her senior project, she focused on what her home meant to her during her childhood, combing both prints and poetry. Chrissy draws on her childhood, as well as her physical surroundings for inspiration, creating beautiful and captivating prints, cards, and various other types of hand-crafted art. More than anything, Chrissy values the hand-crafted aspect and originality of any art she does. Chrissy loves fairy tales, fables, and the film "The Princess Bride." We are very proud of her and her beautiful art, and I know that after seeing it, I'm sure you will fall in love with it too. You can purchase her original, hand-made art from her Etsy shop here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/christinefredendall. You can also view and follow her blog here: http://christinefredendall.blogspot.com/. She has a special coupon code for a 20% discount in your Etsy shop, listed on her blog. Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Terri!
