Hello! My name is Christy. I am the Artist behind Urban Veggie, LLC.
I am a health enthusiast by day, and a contemporary mixed media artist by night that has started a line called ?Urban Veggie?. This venture promotes a Beautiful, Sustainable, Healthy, and Active Lifestyle. My artistic designs are available on Etsy: Etsy.com/shop/UrbanVeggie; my thoughts, articles, recipes, blogs, tips, and tricks are available at: www.UrbanVeggie.weebly.com
Throughout my journey as an artist, I have been featured in numerous shows, journals, galleries, and storefront retailers throughout Colorado. My designs are currently displayed on Etsy, as well as on Blake Lively's website "Preserve.us". Throughout various courses in high school and college, I studied sculpture, woodwork, metals, pottery, jewelry and many other art mediums. These courses inspired me to work with recycled and sustainable materials; and thus I began implementing found objects into my artwork. So you caught me--I am a frequent flier to garage sales and thrift stores in order to find unique materials.
I am passionate about helping others. I am a Registered Nurse and Personal Trainer in the lovely state of Colorado. I rely on my background as a health professional to help others on their path to wellness of the spirit, mind, and body. I believe that if you put good into the world, that it will come back to you. My recent inspirational obsession Mr. Kid President stated, "Love changes everything, so fill the world with it". I think that it all boils down to the golden rule that we all were taught back in kindergarten, "Treat others the way you want to be treated". It is basic karma folks.
In my free time I love to spend time with friends, family, coworkers, and my rock--aka my wonderful hubby Alex. I love to spend time outdoors biking, hiking, and relaxing on the patio watching a good old fashioned sunset. I whole-heartedly enjoy traveling, live music, ?mom and pop? coffee shops, snuggling up to a good movie, the smell after it rains, group exercise classes, yoga, and apples with peanut butter. I adore spending time in the kitchen or art studio creating new things--anything from new healthful vegetarian recipes, to sculptures out of recycled materials.
So let?s promote a beautiful healthy balance of mind, body, and spirit by "Going Green" together and doing our best to; Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, and Upcycle!
