H E L L O! I’m Christa David. I'm a NYC based artist and storyteller on a mission to make meaningful art and art meaningful for me and the masses (or anyone open to being transfixed and transformed by art).

When I was 33, I did the hardest and easiest thing I’ve ever done. I mustered the courage to publicly profess the feelings and desires that had been buried in my heart for as long as I can remember.

I am an artist.

I want to make art.

For a living.

For my life.

My wanting to make and live art is part and parcel with me wanting to experience a sense of freedom in every aspect of my life. I want to work, live and love on my own terms. And most importantly, when I am making art, using my hands and my heart, I am transfigured. That’s how I know art is it for me.

If it elevates and ushers you into your highest self. 
That’s how you’ll know too.

You’ll know you are doing what you’ve been created to do by how it makes you feel.

I go to bed at night thinking about the truths I want to communicate through my art, thoughts on history, happiness, joy, pain, disappointment, love, hope, fear, freedom, the human condition. Each night, my heart burst into a million beautiful pieces. Each day, I assemble them into something I hope will inspire someone else to muster up the courage to profess what’s true for herself. That’s how I know art is for me.

If it keeps you up at night.
That’s how you’ll know too.

When I am sitting in my kitchen-turned-art-studio I feel nourished, calm, peaceful, beautiful and nearest to God. Now, will my work transfix folks as Picasso, Bearden, or Kara Walker’s does, who knows. For now, I feel privileged to just be free and clear.

I am an artist.
I want to make art.
For a living.
For my life.
All the time.
