Christa Forrest is a Connecticut artist specializing in mixed media. After spending 20 years in a finance career, she decided to follow her creative passion and become a full-time artist. Christa’s art combines contemporary realism and soulful exploration. Her body of work titled “The Emerging Goddess” presents female subjects as triumphant icons. Christa explains, “The empowering female icon, whether religious, spiritual or superhero–she is what we envision within ourselves. Who we strive to be. Who we want to become. Who we are when all the other layers are taken off to reveal our inner selves.”
