About Dave

I’m Dave Christian and I live in a small town in the Sierra Nevada mountains of northern California with my wife and three children, ages 5, 3, and 2. We love to spend time together creating new things and exploring the outdoors our backyard has to offer.

My journey as an artist began as a young child with a love of drawing and an incessant pursuit of excellent penmanship. Fast forward to college and unsure what to major in, I eventually got my Art Education Degree and art scattered it’s way through my life over the course of several careers. My wife and I love to travel and between jobs we found ourselves backpacking through Europe and South America for three months, journaling and drawing along the way. Unable to find any suitable art souvenirs in Patagonia, once home I created a poster of the Torres Towers which became the first travel print in what would eventually turn into a full time career. Three and half years later in June of 2015, I quit my day job to give my art the full time attention it deserved.

I enjoy doing a wide variety of art including drawing, painting, print making, calligraphy, mixed media, and sculpture. One of the greatest appeals of my work has been the travel prints I’ve designed and painted over the years. After my initial Patagonia travel print series, I realized there was a need for a new generation of travel prints depicting local scenes of our iconic area in the Sierra and beyond. My goal is to create a travel print with a vintage yet contemporary feel, combining a scene with hand drawn lettering. Although I didn’t realize it as a child, lettering has become one of my main forms of art which goes hand in hand with my paintings.
