Chris Szelap


Chris Szelap, co-owner and Master Instructor at FSDC for over 25 years, also has a passion for the arts.  Her musical talent, inherited from her Mother, allowed her to perform as a professional pianist for several years. Her artistic talent, inherited from her father, culminated in her acceptance into the University of Michigan art school in 1975.  Although her career path took a different direction, her love of art never waned. She is thrilled to now be creating her personalized photo realistic pencil sketches for her clients; especially those of their pets, or creative “name” sketches. Chris proudly sells her work at The Cove in Port Austin and B and B Wines in Bad Axe. For commission work, please contact: or
