A Cranberry Day got its name from happy childhood memories of the cranberry bogs in New England. A Cranberry Day is a peaceful day filled with wonder.
Christie is a local Atlanta artist who can’t pin down any one of the many places she grew up to claim as ‘originally from’. Her perception of beauty in art began to grow in Japan, she embraced the beauty of the Shenandoah Valley, and the playful organic feel of her work was deeply inspired during several years she spent in Mexico.
Christie identifies with weaving on a deep level. The free form, random feel of fiber composition reminds her that life generally doesn’t go as we expect, but can turn out so beautifully anyway. The warp and the weft still need enough order to hold together, just like seemingly mundane daily tasks. The softness and playfulness of different fibers is warm and inviting in a home. Beauty can be found and embraced in all the little pockets of life
