Christy Ann Skuban Studio
Welcome to my colorful playhouse of multi media art and fashion accessories! Some words about me: I received my formal training in abstract painting and fashion design at the Art Institute of Chicago, Parsons School of Design NYC and the Art Student's League of New York City. Before I became an independent artist I was employed at Saks Fifth Avenue as a fashion stylist for visual merchandising. For 12 years I created fashion magic in their windows and interior displays. Life events brought me back to my roots in the midwest where I began my career as a jewelry designer. I chose to be part of the traveling art fair community which has been a rewarding way to exhibit and sell my mixed media abstract jewelry. I describe my jewelry as being colorful and fun little wearable sculptures. I have always enjoyed exploring new mediums to express myself on an artistic level. I have gone forward to develop my skills in felt making and mixed media wall hangings and sculpture. I am constantly looking for ways to express through art the colorful and offbeat world that dwells inside of me. Please join me as I pursue artistic and creative new ventures at the Artisan Forge Studios!
