Hello, my name is Christine Ricks. I’m a designer, developer, and artist based in northern California.

I’ve built a fashion discovery platform I’m passionate about, worked for Adobe, done my own bootstrapped startup, and drawn something that went to space. See my work, read my résumé, or find out more about me.

I’m a 29-year-old queer/bisexual fat femme. I paint, take photos, and hoard animated GIFs when I’m not at Joyable. My paintings are usually of nebulae and other space phenomena – I ♥ the Hubble Space Telescope. I also spend a lot of time reading about feminism, body positivity, and LGBTQ issues.

I consume a lot more social media than I produce, with the exception of Instagram – follow me there for photos of San Francisco, rad plants, and my boyfriend’s incredibly photogenic cat.

My dream is to someday grow Wanted & Found into something I can work on alongside other plus size women who love fashion.

I’m serious about the gif hoarding.
