Chris Seger is originally from rural Connecticut and received a B.F.A. from the University of Hartford Art School where she studied painting, sculpture, drawing and printmaking. She completed a M.F.A. in 1984 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago focusing her graduate work in the school's acclaimed Printmaking and Time-Arts courses of study. The skilled artist engaged in a nine-year computer graphic design career in the Chicago-land business area. Chris rounded out her career as a high school art teacher in Naperville, Illinois teaching both traditional and digital art for 27 years.
Now retired in central Florida, the artist has time to create, bouncing around from realism to abstraction and using traditional or digital methods. She enjoys not committing to one form of art-making, but rather explores through a variety of means within the art-making process. Themes change, but many are about the power and subtlety of nature with images depicting chaotic arrangements held together by underlying structures or forces.
“I am excited about producing again and getting my work out there.”
