About the Artist


“My journey as an artist is ever changing, yet I am consistently compelled 

to satisfy an inner call to create,”  

explains Southern California artist Chris Strode. As a young girl helping her

 father with creative projects, a young adult living amongst the beauty of Hawaii, 

and a world traveler surfing or supporting the professional athletes in her family, 

Chris seeks ways to capture the emotional energy that surrounds her.

Chris's creative journey includes work as a stained glass artisan, graphic

 designer, and gallery artist (displaying pieces in the galleries of Laguna Beach 

and throughout Southern California).  Artistically, Chris derives satisfaction 

from, "capturing a joyful, pleasurable, and energetic moment that 

can be revisited time and time again."
