Are you ready to live in a beautiful space that resonates with your distinct personality and reflects your discerning tastes?
Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here!
If you want a vibrant domain that speaks to and about you (and who doesn’t?), décor is a must-have—but hand-me-downs and dated, mass-produced posters that everyone and your sister-in-law has aren’t exactly what you had in mind.
You want your house to feel like home, a lively, comfortable space where you can completely relax and unwind from your work days. You also want your wall art to tell a unique story, and to be an attention-getting conversation piece when you have guests.
Meaningful artwork in the home reduces stress, stimulates creativity, and encourages personal connections, which means you can do more than simply exist in your living space—you can thrive!
Let’s be honest—we’ve all plastered something (anything!) on the blank empty spaces of our walls, just to cover the huge, gaping void.
We’ve walked past those generic pieces over and over, desperately wishing they sparked some joy for us, eventually regretting having settled for the merely functional.
Thankfully, times have changed, and the Internet enables us to discover art that we truly love, almost effortlessly. We can easily connect with artists and explore the stories behind their artwork with the simple click of a button.
We can be more selective and so much more personal in our choices, and we don’t need to drive to store after store or visit overwhelming galleries with pushy, intimidating salespeople.
We can decide on décor based on our true desires, rather than the limited selection available in the nearest chain store. We can shop on our own schedules (and even in our pajamas)!
If you’re tired of settling for lackluster art that doesn’t add to your quality of life, Christi Kraft Photography will change all that.
If you’re like most of my clients, you’re a vibrant, hardworking individual whose walls are desperately in need of something special.
You’re ready to truly feel at home in your living space. It’s just those boring walls that are cramping your style.
Imagine walking into your home after a long day of work and feeling completely relaxed, basking in the comfort of everyday luxury, with a new sense of pride in your refreshed, revitalized surroundings.
You’re no longer panicked about whether your home is ready to welcome company; in fact, you’re excited to invite guests to visit. (And it’s perfectly okay if you love it so much that you decide to stay in, thoroughly enjoying your happy place all by yourself!)
You can reinvigorate your surroundings, feel a sense of authenticity and pride in your home, and create a sanctuary that excites and inspires you—and those you invite to share your space.
For more than 20 years, I have studied with professors and professionals, learning how to create masterful photographic art in both traditional and digital darkrooms.
My photographs explore the intricate details of the world around us through abstract, macro, floral, and architectural compositions in both vivid color and stunning black and white.
I am a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America, and a contributing artist for The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals, a nonprofit organization that places upbeat, hope-filled artwork in healthcare facilities around the globe.
Before I became a professional photographer, however...
I worked in a large government office, surrounded daily by grouchy customers, exhausted co-workers, and dingy cubicle walls that were several decades overdue for a deep cleaning.
It was soul sucking.
I tried my best to infuse positivity into my workplace, to genuinely care for the people I interacted with, and to improve the dismal reputation of the department in which I worked. When I came home at the end of the day, I was spent.
Photography, a lifelong love, became a comforting refuge.
I filled my living space with encouraging pieces that reminded me that there is so much good in the world, and I would go back to work with a bit more pep in my step. Photography prints brightened my cubicle walls and offered a welcoming space for my tired office mates.
When I finally left that office, I knew I had a unique opportunity to help other people find their own much needed respite and refuge in art, which is why I started Christi Kraft Photography.
For the past 11 years, Christi Kraft Photography has offered fresh, creative fine art prints that infuse invigorating beauty and bold personality into homes across the globe. My work hangs on walls from France to Florida, Warsaw to West Virginia.
In addition to individual collectors, I also work with designers and business owners to breathe much needed life into corporate spaces, because I understand firsthand the importance of inspiring artwork in the workplace.
Every day, I help amazing individuals like you create vibrant homes where you feel totally comfortable and authentically represented, free to express the fullness of your brilliant self as you relax and share your space with those you love.
