"Chrysti is a real artist and a nice person... my kida person."
February 25th, 2009
"I was absolutely blown away by Chrysti's amazingly obvious talent. She has such a wonderful touch to what she creates. I would believe it if she said she has magic in her fingers... It makes perfect sense.
Chrysti is richly blessed with an entrancing style of art. I deeply respect her."

"I don't know where I first met Chrysti, maybe ZNE, but wherever it was, she made me feel special and welcome, and not like a newbie. She is generous with her comments, her art and her 'teaching.' I am in awe of her published articles as well as her art. More incredibly, she is an outstanding photographer on top of everything else."
