Christy’s past projects have centred around sustainability and beauty. She designed and created a sustainable nightwear collection titled “Wake Up’. Inspired by the vast scenery of the ever-diminishing Amazon Rain Forest, the collection aimed to raise awareness of increasing deforestation and climate change issues whilst showcasing the beauty of nature. This was followed by a series of illustrated tribal portraits titled ‘Natural Fashion’.

With her up close angular crops and experimentation with colour, she explores the ideology of the feminine physic.
