ART BY CHRISTY

A childhood illness led to Christy Works-Boutte’s loss of hearing at the age of one. Christy’s love of vibrant colors and the ability to create harmony using thick oil paints has become a trademark of her paintings. Her love of and passion for art grew while attending the world-renowned Ringling College of Art & Design in Sarasota, Florida. There she developed a strong artistic style, and in 2000, became the school’s first deaf student to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. All of Christy’s paintings continue to be works from the heart where she states they are “from my heart to yours.” Christy has been blessed with significantly increased popularity in recent years. She has obtained a vast and diverse resume and has enjoyed creating the posters for Gretna Heritage Festival, New Orleans Wine and Food Experience, The International Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo, The Jean Lafitte Seafood Festival, and others including the Plaquemines Parish Fair and Orange Festival which was named the “Best Festival Poster” of 2008 by the Louisiana Association of Fair and Festivals.
