Born and raised in the Mustang community, Christy’s work is shaped by her experiences growing up within the area. She finds inspiration from her faith, family, and friends. She loves to repurpose unwanted materials into something new and unexpected. She feels this reflects the transformations in her own life, having to make adjustments at times to work around her limitations. "Although I often can't do things the way others may expect," she says, "doesn't mean I can't do them in unexpected ways.
