Meet the Snowman Stroll artists - Chrissy Pruett
Chrissy has always been interested in art from a young age and has spent her whole life working on becoming an artist. Chrissy is not only an artist, but also an art teacher for children and adults. She spent many years teaching art for Sweetwater County School District #1 in Rock Springs, and continues to teach art to students in Lander at Gannet Peak Elementary and at the Lander Art Center.
Chrissy’s artwork is inspired by Wyoming’s beautiful and abundant flora and fauna and our western way of life. Her favorite media to use is colored pencil and watercolor in her professional work. She has also painted many murals found in Rock Springs and in Laramie, Wyoming. Public art, to her, is one of the most important additions to any community, and she is overjoyed to create art for all to enjoy. Chrissy frequently sells her work and competes in art competitions and quick draws all over the state.
Chrissy lives just outside of Lander, Wyoming with her husband, Evan, and their two children, Kodi and Calvin. When she is not creating art, Chrissy is out enjoying the beautiful Wind River mountains with her family and her animals.
Chrissy Pruett is the artist behind the snowman entitled, “Winter in the Mountains”. Chrissy was inspired to create this wintery mountain scene by her frequent hikes near her home in Wyoming’s Wind River range. The large array of colors in the sky was inspired by the beautiful winter skies we enjoy in Wyoming. The fox, elk, and Great-horned Owl are all animals Chrissy sees near her home.
