In 2008, Christy moved back to her home town of Windsor to pursue an opportunity creating custom uniforms for the hospitality, entertainment, and gaming industries. As a full time freelancer, she designed custom uniforms for over 35 casinos in North America. She also had the unique opportunity to help develop the Wizarding World of Harry Potter uniform program.

By 2010, Christy decided to switch paths and began participating in art shows, passionately following her dream of a career in the Arts. In 2013 & 2014, she produced SKIN Windsor’s Alternative Arts & Culture Show which showcased over 150 participants from the Windsor area.

 

In 2017, after taking a year off to battle a recent diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Christy came back with a mission to push her career in the Arts even further. She completed a variety of murals throughout the city and county, and joined her Fashion family once again at St. Clair College. She has been awarded several grants in 2017 & 2018 including an Arts, Culture + Heritage Fund Grant from the City of Windsor; a significant grant from the Canadian Department of Heritage: Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage Program; as well as a grant from the Town of LaSalle. 

In 2018, Christy began her intensive study of Sacred Geometry with the mission of healing her body from it's cancer experience through spiritual practice. It was with that that she began to shift her focus, indeed her life, by diving into Visionary Art. It is her mission to bring this sacred symbolic knowledge, that has been passed down through spiritual art throughout history, to people who are searching to bring something meaningful and positive into their homes.
