Christy Nimeh Bio
Christy is a mixed media artist living and creating from her home studio in
Southern California. Her work is rooted and inspired by thoughts, impulse,
nature and life unfolding. Each piece has multiple layers and a great deal
Says Christy: "Most of the time I create a piece that could be considered
finished, but then I push it further and seem to completely destroy it, in a
good way. I have grown to thrive on this process and view the 'mess' as pure
raw beauty. I typically won't release a piece until it has gone through some
sort of destruction and ultimately, a rebirth. Coming to understand this way
of painting has allowed me to feel free to express whatever emotion I'm
feeling within each layer and to be able to view art as a process, just like
Christy chooses to use a variety of media in any given piece including
plaster, acrylic, oil, pencil, ink, paper, wax, and various mark-making utensils.
Christy's work can be found in private collections across the country.
