Always an avid art collector, Christie Farese began the study of oil painting in 2008 with Mississippi artist Julie McCartney. Finding great joy in painting, she traveled to California to further her studies with artist Camille Przewodek. She continues to study closely with Mississippi artist Sammy Britt, and is currently enjoying workshops with Atlanta artist Nancy Franke.

Christie’s work has been featured in several art exhibitions, including shows at Mistletoe Marketplace, Twenty-Nine 06 Studios, Madison Station School of the Arts and New Stage Theater. In November 2012, she was the featured artist at “Cicada for Her” during the Oxford Arts Crawl.

A Mississippi native, Christie resides in the Madison area with her husband and two daughters.
