Christi Kraft : Featured Artist
Christi Kraft is a fine art photographer from Madison, WI. A life-long camera carrier, she began seriously pursuing photography more than 10 years ago.
In college, she learned how to truly create photographic works of art, both in camera and in traditional and digital darkrooms.
How many of us never knew a cabbage patch could be so colorful?
The American flag and the flag of the state of Wisconsin blow in the breeze in front of the Wisconsin Capitol dome.

I must admit I adore sunflowers and really love this beautiful sunny image!
Christi shows her skills here as an artistic photographer - her use of color theory and tone is excellent.
There is something about some photographers that manage to bring out the sensuality in their floral work, and in this area I find that Christi Kraft truly shines in her artistry.
Perspective anyone? This is it! The artists eye once again shows another unique side to the mastery of her artistic vision.
Christi Kraft's photographic artwork is a keen observation of the beauty, humor, and interest found in the intricate details of the world around her. Her photography has received accolades from artists and collectors across the globe. She is also a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America and the steering committee of 1stAngel Arts Magazine.
Beautiful red and gold leaves of fall, or autumn, depending on where you live, but for me - I can't get the sound of the old song "Autumn Leaves" out of my head. There is something about fall that artists seem intrinsically drawn to, and Christi Kraft is no exception.
To complete my adventure into Christi's porfolio I am leaving off on a high note - who says a bird cannot have a color change?
Peacock feathers in a whole new light and color! Beautiful color and rich tones - I really could hang this image in my study!
