From pencils to acrylics, Chris Osborne is a prolific artist in several mediums. In the 1980s, she moved to New York to work with legendary artist and artists’ agent Jane Lander, whom she assisted in representing a group of illustrators with a focus on fine art. This experience guided Osborne toward figurative drawing and painting and enabled her to pursue painting on her own. She supplemented her work by managing the Jazz & Blues department at Tower Records Lincoln Center, the largest retail record store in New York.
Osborne received a BA in art from Bard College and an MFA in printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her work has hung in galleries and art associations in the Northeast and New York City, as well as at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, the Harlem Fine Arts Show, and invitational exhibits at annual collector car events. She has also had art featured in the collections of music legends such as Tony Bennett and Cassandra Wilson. The Connecticut Office of the Arts honored Osborne with a grant through the Artist Fellowship Program for her history of jazz and blues in visual form, which spans many decades and cities with the American automobile as a focal point. In addition, she has received multiple prizes from the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic.
Osborne lives in New Milford, Connecticut, where she was raised.
