Raised in New Milford, Connecticut, Osborne received a BA in Art from Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson NY and an MFA in printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After an extended stay on Martha's Vineyard in the 1970's, she moved to New York City, working with legendary artist's agent Jane Lander representing a group of illustrators with a preference toward fine art. This pivotal move guided Chris toward figurative drawing and painting, and in the mid-1980's she left the agent profession to pursue art on her own.
Over the decade of the 1990's Chris supplemented her work by managing the Jazz & Blues department at Tower Records Lincoln Center, the largest retail record store in New York, which put her significantly in the midst of the music world. It was an experience that will forever enrich her painting, as she is currently working on a history of Jazz and a history of Blues in visual form, decade-by-decade, city-by-city, with the American automobile as a natural focal point. The Connecticut Office of the Arts has awarded this project a 2012 Artist Fellowship Grant.

"In the late 1980s while photographing Bo Diddley for a painting, I learned he had owned a 1957 Chevy and I decided to paint him with one; that's how the car thing started," said Osborne, who has been creating art since she was a child.
