Chris is a photographer, personal trainer, and an endurance athlete. Both JoAnna and Chris are avid birdwatchers, and this shines through as the focal point in their art displayed at the Kellogg Environmental Center.

Blue Rock Studio showcases fine art specializing in birds, wildlife, and nature. The studio rests on 8 acres of land with natural gardens, birdhouses, nature trails, and a stream and pond, which is an ideal location for artists and photographers to encounter wildlife to inspire their creations. This exhibit features a mixture of fine arts, wildlife photography, and shadowboxes that connect you to the natural world. The paintings and photographs on display are rich with vibrant colors and the wildlife subjects seem to come alive.
