Christine Horchheiner

Chrissy is a freelance artist living in Portland since 2009. With an ever growing love for the written word, she has worked as an illustrator for a local publishing company for the last six years and attributes most of her creative inspiration to literature, especially within the science fiction and horror genres. She enjoys adapting and interpreting fictional worlds into visual art, and  works with a variety of mediums, including ink, acrylic paint, watercolor, and oil crayon.


Using pop culture as a sounding board for artistic expression, Chrissy has an “anything goes” policy for creating interesting pieces. There is no topic too weird or controversial for her to paint, although often times her work is comical and light-hearted in nature.
