The Lovely Art of Christie Repasy



One of the things I always look forward to is going to an event where artist Christie Repasy
will be showing her beautiful paintings and art work.




I'm sure you are all familiar with Christie from her lovely blog Chateau De Fleurs and seeing her
work in leading magazines, her HGTV appearance and on Rachel Ashwell's television show.

I first met Christie at the Olivenhain sale over a year and a half ago.  I was very familiar with her
beautiful paintings and it was such a wonderful pleasure to find her absolutely sweet and delightful.
I was just beginning to blog and wasn't quite sure if it was something I would really want to do but
she was warm and encouraging and...well, here we all are!



Some people are just born to be artists and Christie is one of those people. Her paintings are
all beautiful and peaceful.  She is best known for her French inspired romantic roses and florals
but it doesn't stop there. You should see what happens when she adds her art to chairs, doors,
shutters, etc.  It is an amazing artistic transformation.
She is a true California girl having grown up in Huntington Beach, California and studied art in
high school and college and from there developed her own exquisite style.  She has plans to take
her existing designs from already completed pieces and use them in textiles and wallpaper...and
that is just the beginning!
Here are a few more examples of Christie Repasy's beautiful paintings...















Chairs where she has added her beautiful florals...









I am looking forward to seeing Christie again in the beginning of June at her next show at
The Vintage Marketplace at The Oaks in Rainbow, California. 
I know you will want to visit Christie's lovely blog Chateau De Fleurs where you can also find links
to her HGTV appearance, Pinterest site and her events.  When you visit please say hello for me
and tell her I send her a big hug.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Just beautiful Susan and if I had to pick one it would be the roses trailing over the top of the window. She's an amazing painter and I'm off to check out her sites.

I hope you're having a good start to your week!

Christie's work is exquisite, so ethereal. She is an amazing artist and I put her right there with Klein and De Longpre. I would love to see her work in person. :)

Oh, her paintings are beautiful! The first one reminds me so much of my wicker bike...maybe she has one too. I really can't believe I haven't heard of her before, her work is so wonderful.
