Cris launched Cris Logan Art in 2017. Although Cris always dabbled in art as a youth, like most creatives, she pursued a more "traditional" path, working in communications and public policy on Internet safety and anti-human trafficking issues for over a decade. When she had her children, she took a step back from her career and began painting for her own home and kids.
Friends began asking for commissioned work, and at the end of 2015, Cris began posting her daily doodles on her Instagram page. In late 2016, Cris began working with PR Group BrandlinkDC, doing brand-based illustrations of their clients including SweetGreen, Scout Bags, &Pizza, Drybar, the J.Crew Men's Shop and Soulcyle. She also began creating illustrations for brands including Tod's, I.
