Christine Olmstead

Hello Friend. Welcome.

While you’re here, I ask that you stop for a second and take a deep breath. Take a second out of your day to just breathe. I believe you came here for a reason and I hope to make your stay enjoyable. Take a second to breathe, slow down, and just enjoy where you are and what you see. Close a few of those tabs. Browse the gallery with a glass of wine. Shop for a gift for a friend at your leisure. Read my awkward stories on the blog with a cup of coffee. Thanks for taking a minute to slow down with me. I hope you’re feeling a little freer right now. As you slow down and breathe try to embrace peace and joy, release your stresses and fears. Take a second to notice where you are, what you see, and try to find some beauty there. As an artist, my goal is to get you to feel something. I hope that when you look at my pieces whether in person or online that you feel peaceful, joyful, and that you can remember all of the beauty around you. Each of my pieces are handcrafted to encourage and uplift you. Thanks for stopping and experiencing my art the way I intended it to be experienced. I hope you enjoy your visit, stay as long as you like.
