About Christie

Christie Younger is an American artist who lives and works near Raleigh, North Carolina.  Her paintings are collected internationally and shown in several acclaimed galleries across the Southeastern United States. She has a diverse background and education in fine art along with biological science. This along with her love of the outdoors and travel brings to life her unique artistic perspective which ultimately is intended to convey light, beauty, and simplicity while simultaneously expressing the complexities within a subject finding balance between contradictions.

She pushes this idea further by deconstructing her view into simpler elements while simultaneously including authentic moments to convey more elaborate ideas. She is intrigued with the interactions between negative and positive space, marrying the old with the new, and varying texture. Most all of her works are created using a simple palette knife. While not limiting herself to one single path on her artistic journey, she enjoys the freedom of expression found through working with several mediums and tools.
