Meet June's Featured Artist, Christi Hough!
Come in to view see her artwork and try her signature donut, the Ginger Snap; vanilla icing topped with streusel and candied ginger.
Christi’s story reflects the consuming passion that the arts instills in creative personalities. The pursuit of the arts was an early dream for her but as happens all too often, she followed a more practical path. Christi earned a degree in accounting but her heart still belonged to the arts.
While working in the financial sector she continued her education in the visual arts. She studied residential interiors and took many hours of decorative and faux painting courses at the Art Institute of Atlanta. Although she found these fields interesting, she sought real fulfillment in painting. In 2010 she fully committed to the art life and now paints every day. She is currently pursuing an MFA in painting and expects to have her degree in 2016.
Christi’s work includes oil paintings with soft contours and deep contrast that invoke a sense of breathability and encaustic pieces that brush the edges of photo realism, leaving just enough space for artistic interpretation.
