Christian Ridder has been drawing and painting all his life. He only began painting seriously in high school. He studied architecture in Philadelphia and hopes to incorporate what he loves about the past into the art and architecture of the future. This is what gives the nostalgic setting of The Peppermints such an appeal to him.
