Christianna Kreiss – Resume
Originally from Germany, Christianna has lived in various parts of Europe such as Hungary, France and Switzerland before coming to New York City in 1996 and Pittsburgh in 1999. She is a graduate of the Technical University of Munich, Germany, and has been a physician for many years. Christianna has also completed a Certificate of Photography at Pittsburgh Filmmakers. She brings these experiences to her work as an artist and feels that visual art is another way of communication, exploration and interaction.
Pittsburgh, PA has become her second home with its interesting neighborhoods, fascinating cityscapes, old historic buildings and its many ethnic communities, where she feels that she can always discover challenging and inspiring subject matter.
Christianna is a member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Society of Artists and AgWorks, a photographic artist’s collective.
