Criss Rueda is an artist, graphic designer and Origami aficionado from the Andean region of Ecuador, in the city of Quito. Ever since she was a child, doodling on the walls of her grandma’s house, she has wanted to be an artist. This ambition first led her to study around the world and eventually brought her to her new home, the beautiful north Oregon coast, where nature’s dazzling colors and organic shapes inspire her work.
The time Criss spent in Austria and Spain to formally study graphic design, marketing, and and advertising inspired her to take her art and design to new places.
Criss presents her “Christmas Show” at the Manzanita Library during the month of November.
