"You have a magical way of capturing the light." 

Dealers Say:

"I think your paintings are working their way into my dreams...Isn't that interesting?  Last night I had a really fascinating dream involving a tree that I think was inspired by your Summer Afternoon piece...and another day I woke up feeling like I had dreamt about Tuscan Dreams."
Whitney Mayer, Swan Studio Interiors

With a classic art education from the University of Detroit, Chris Witkowski has made great use of her academic foundation as a fine artist and illustrator. She brings her love of color and the ability to render the mysteries of light to all of her work. The natural beauty of the western landscape and seashore continue to be the catalyst for her art.  The abundance of its gardens, farms and vineyards have supplied inspiration for numerous paintings and illustrations. Her illustration clients find she can intuit their vision and translate it into imagery that best supports their mission. Chris' paintings are in collections throughout the United States, Japan and Europe. She now resides in Port Townsend, Washington.
