Evanston based designer Christie Russert is the artist behind the illustration/lifestyle brand, Sunshine Canteen®. Her work is a blend of vibrant, abstract patterns and landscapes that have 70’s, west coast influences. Christie created Sunshine Canteen® as a way to meld her interests (travel, skateboarding, photography & design) into one place. She channels the bright, creative spirit that she gets from her hobbies & travels and pours that energy into making art.
“When I create, it brings me to a happy place. I want to inspire that laid-back, sunny mentality into everyday life through my artwork.”
She licenses her work through Society6, Deny Designs and also through collaborations with brands that feature her designs on a variety of products.
