Chris Schiotis - 2016

I am a multi-disciplinary designer from the Los Angeles area. Although I have been living and working for the last 20 years here in the Southern California area, I have lived all over the continental United States, much of that being in the Midwest.

People and places have significantly affected my work, energizing and inspiring new and different ideas that mesh well with my experiences and ‘old school’ influences.

This year I have had the pleasure of exploring the Southwestern US; Arizona and New Mexico being the focus of my travels. Seeing these places creates a substantial contrast in my mind as opposed to the densely populated Los Angeles area. I really enjoyed Albuquerque and Santa Fe! My stay there was brief, but a piece of my heart is still there.

I find working with other creative professionals to be an especially rewarding experience. The profound effect that my associates, instructors and students have had on my work is difficult to put into words. I would not be who I am without them and I am eternally grateful for them.

I look forward with excitement to a future that holds more of all of the wonderful things that make life so grand.

People, places and experiences that enrich our work, lives and hearts can indeed be described as Grand... Thank you for looking at my portfolio page and work!
