Chrissy Ortez was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. She will graduate from Portland State University in June 2014 with a BA in Art Practices.
Chrissy describes the work by saying, “I make collages that critique images and ideas that I am bombarded with everyday. I make humorous and colorful collages that address beauty, sex, violence and food. Some collages are completed quickly through chance encounter of images, while others involve intensive work and careful image selection.”.
