Chrissy Sie-Merritt

An explorer of the sacredness of being, Chrissy Sie-Merritt expresses a passion for peeling away the layers of self and honours this process through her art practice. Her work is one of a personal healing journey. Intuitively, she creates marks using her whole body to express a moment in time or sits in quiet to allow ideas and images to rise from within. This physical conversation with the ebb and flow of life is her impetus to go deeper, exploring our connection to the natural rhythms of the world around and within us. These images are expressed with both charcoal and acrylic.

Residing in East Braintree Manitoba, Chrissy has always been inspired by the cycles of nature and the connection of these rhythms within her life's journey. Chrissy studied Fine Art at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and has continued to work on her art career with Creative Manitoba since 2013, including mentoring local youth and creating art programs for all ages. Chrissy has shown her work in a solo and group setting at the Cre8ery Gallery in Winnipeg and the Reynolds Business Centre in Prawda. She has created various murals in and around the Whiteshell Provincial Park and was selected to be a guest artist and interior designer for a unique water themed moving gallery for Canada’s 150 celebration.
