Christa Amos resides in Chester County, PA where she works in her home studio creating works in both oil and watercolor. Christa studied illustration and graphic design at Moore College of Art and Design and later acquired a Master’s degree from Arcadia University. As an art educator, Christa strives to connect to her students through stories and art making. As a practicing artist, she connects to her audience through the subject matter of her art. Anecdotal in nature, Christa’s paintings capture simple glimpses of everyday life and places that we all might encounter. She is a visual storyteller. She is sharer of memories that are personal, yet, universal. Putting memories to paint, they become permanent – for Christa as well as her audience.
As a life-long learner, Christa seeks opportunities to learn and enjoys the creative process in many mediums. While her primary medium is oil, the evolution of her art practice has included exploration in watercolor, fiber arts, printmaking, metals, and clay just to name a few. Currently she is expanding her work in oils to include various techniques, theories, mediums and substrates. Christa finds satisfaction in the art process as much as the art product.
