My Sister’s Website
I wanted rosy red… she wanted shimmering blue… we ended up with something in between… a gorgeous colorful iridescent… totally unexpected… but maybe this has possibility…
And so it began… two sisters with completely different visions…
(the artist and namesake):
Chrisi is a self-taught artist originally from Los Angeles who now lives and works in Truckee, California. Her artwork always “paints a picture”, with dreamlike scenes filled with colorful animals, mythological creatures, adventures and fantasies. Chrisi is a former teacher which is why she so firmly believes in the importance of imagination, childlike wonder and optimism in a world that is all too serious. Each piece of art reflects this belief and is personally designed and hand painted by Chrisi. She creates each one-of-a-kind hand painted piece using several different brightly colored stains and vibrant acrylic paints to turn an ordinary piece of furniture or a hunk of wood into a functional piece of art. Chrisi’s functional art is made to enjoy, inspire and last for as long as your imagination and care will allow!
Tracy (buyer, operations manager, public relations director etc.):

While Tracy and Chrisi are undoubtedly the heart and soul behind Chrisi.com they realize “it takes a village” to build a successful business. They want to be sure the following get the credit they deserve:
Chris Tokunaga: Chris is the talent behind the logo. He is an experienced web designer that thankfully is a friend of the owners. Chris has worked on many website designs and animation for a major toy company. Chrisi knew it had to be a mermaid and Chris designed the stunning image you see today. Please check his work out on Okunaga.com
Shalaine Blazic: Shalaine had no choice, she is related. She not only contributed her twins and her son to complete the pictures on the site she took the photos. Take a look at more of her photography at blazicphotos.com
Stacy Swineford: If you don’t like the words on the website, Stacy is the one to blame. As a previous technical telecommunications writer she perhaps went a little crazy with the creative license Tracy and Chrisi gave her. She also writes about herself in the third person. (Never a good sign) She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
