Chris Lewis had a successful career as a freelance Illustrator but then in the early 80’s decided to become a full-time Artist. She moved from the hard-edged glamorous world of Coca-Cola, American Express to the world of Clay... She says: “Creating sculpture was a natural outgrowth from advertising illustration. Although both professions are outlets for creative expression, illustration is inherently limited by the need to sell a product, whereas fine art allows the exploration of personal objectives.” (Artist’s website)
Life, world and Nature dilemmas and dramas inspire her as an Artist. By creating art about and around these predicaments and vicious circles she comes to understand the situations better and then with her work, shares this understanding with the viewer.

Her “Addiction” Series was fueled by her son’s struggle with his drug addiction. The Struggle to accept this addiction, to overcome it and love one another. Her addiction work was on show at the Jim Cherry Learning Resource Center Gallery in 2010.
