Medium: Acrylic Painter
Bio: Christa Rollock’s journey began in a small town in Bavaria, Germany. From an early age she was drawn to all forms of art. Christa sang, drew and painted in school. She paid attention to the world around her and always dreamed about bringing this view to the canvas one day. It was in beautiful Bavaria, home of dreamy castles and dramatic mountain ranges, where she began to develop her artistic sensibilities.
After following her Military husband to the United States, Christa began painting in Acrylics at the age of 49 and is now a prolific artist.
Christa believes that the artistic process is the art and that there are only new experiences which go hand-in-hand with innovation, discovery and spirit. Her paintings are inspired by her passion for her family, travel and nature. She continues to draw inspiration anywhere and everywhere she finds herself.
Christa is happily married and the mother of two grown children and is currently living and working in Richmond, Texas. Artist statement: Much of my art is inspired by the world around me. Painting for me is like life: an emotional roller coaster of highs and lows, ups and downs. The creation of each piece of art allows me to express my emotions. It is a very cathartic process for me. I walk around each painting, play with colors, light and textures. Seeing the finished product is like seeing the world through my own interpretative lens.
