About The Artist


Chrissie Ernst (CJ) is an established local artist and registered nurse.  She is a native of Colorado and has exhibited in local galleries and restaurants.  Her love of color is captured in her scenic and still life subjects painted in watercolor and acrylics. Chrissie has established her private studio in her home including  a gallery to exhibit her work.  In addition to her gallery work, commissioned paintings can be requested to replicate memorable events, people, and their homes. 

“Painting helps keep me balanced.  While I am painting, I am in the moment. I don’t think about the past or the future, I am brought into the here and now.” – CJ
