Christi Brittain has always been interested in art since she was a young girl. Her first exposure and lesson was at a summer camp when she was around eight years old. She watched a camp counselor draw a portrait of a woman and was really intrigued. She started drawing black and white images all the way through high school and then on to college.
Seven years ago Christi decided to try painting. Other than taking an art class in high school and a pottery class in college, she had never taken a painting class. Drawing came much easier for her than painting in the beginning. It took some time for her to be able to paint what she was actually envisioning in her mind. As with anything, through time and trial and error, her painting continued to improve. Her painting has now become as natural as her drawing skills.
With the support and encouragement of her mother, husband and friends, Christi finally decided to move forward to share her art with others and formed her business called-'Freckles N Toes'. (Learn more of her story in the video above)
