Midwest-born and raised artist, designer, and illustrator, Christina Scheppmann Thomas, works out of her studio at Var Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She splashes and scrapes bold color combinations into joy-filled abstract and botanical paintings. Christina freely moves a brush across a surface as if she is dancing (and sometimes she is.) Her playful watercolor-based illustrations are used to create product designs that carry whimsy into the world of function.
Christina holds a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art and a Master’s degree in Business Management both from The University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Outside of her studio practice, Christina freelances as a social media manager, designer, and consultant for other artists and creative businesses. Her mission in this work is to help creative-minded entrepreneurs understand how to promote and market themselves in meaningful and impactful ways.
