Christa won the 1st prize in the Society of Illustrators competition. Later, she was awarded a fellowship to complete her Masters of Fine Arts degree, and after graduation she went on to teach a special class for gifted high school students. She received numerous commissions from various companies, including Digitek Corporation, Caspari, Simon and Schuster, the Royal Mail of England, the NFL and Portal Publication. She later decided to devote all of her efforts to easel painting. She draws on her own European experiences as she explores what she refers to as a romantic and exciting time. She gets great pleasure out of capturing the magical hour at dusk.
