About the artist:
What’s in a name? Perhaps nothing, perhaps it holds a sense of destiny. Christoffer was named by his parents as an offering to God to fulfill His purposes and callings. Hence, the unusual spelling of his name “Christ’s offer.” Once Christoffer signs his name to a piece of art it becomes an offering and a testimony to the gifts and callings of God.
Born in Izmir Turkey in 1968 while his father was in the Air Force, Christoffer Frank sold his first work of art by the age of thirteen. Chris graduated high school in 1986 with numerous art scholarships and awards from Ennis High School. He attended Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas for one year then entered the Army as a broadcast journalist.
In 1996 Chris turned down full scholarships from the University of Texas and a burgeoning career in art to pursue a calling in the ministry. For twelve years Chris put down his paint brushes for the pulpit. Chris led several conservative, Christian churches in the Bible belt. Leaving the ministry in 2006, Chris has again returned to his first love, and embraced the life he was meant to live.
Currently, Chris is re-launching his career as an artist and lives in Alabaster, Alabama. Chris is a member of the Birmingham Art Association, Hoover/ Shelby art association and the Shelby County Arts Council. His work is displayed in several local galleries and private collections throughout the United States.
