About Candace

CJ Metzger paints in acrylics and collage blending narrative, surreal and whimsical imagery. Her work is increasingly influenced by her 5-year old daughter, fairy tales, and her observations of relationships between humans, nature & the environment.

The daughter of an artist and an aerospace engineer, and the granddaughter to artists/designers, CJ began creating art out of an uncontrollable need to communicate this innate visual energy. In doing so she found that people adored the character based and folk art inspired pieces and found them unique and endearing. Currently, CJ’s work is being sought after by galleries, and is being collected by all sorts of arts collecting types.. Her career continues to thrive in multiple directions including; exhibiting in numerous solo and group shows, collaborating with her artist sister Miss Mindy, designing vinyl toys, and writing & illustrating her own children’s book.

"This painting is beautiful!I like your style:)"

"The first thing that grabbed my eye was the moody colors you used. You drew me in with the choice of creatures, do they have relevance? They are alive and questioning of the world around us, they are whimsical and silly and yet they convey a childlike fasination with the world. And the big ears and eyes? You are soaking it all in. I'll drink more red wine and really be able to see it!"

"Your work is amazing! I absolutely love it! You have an amazing gift!:)"
