AFTER SPENDING NEARLY 2O YEARS IN THE DESIGN WORLD, CHRISTINA CHANGED ARTISTIC DIRECTION AND BEGAN TO PAINT. AWESTRUCK BY THE LANDSCAPE, SHE HAS COME TO STUDY ITS EVER-CHANGING QUALITIES THAT MAKE IT SO UNIQUE
"Color, light and value are the elements I value most in my works. They serve as a backdrop to reinforce my compositions of my landscapes. Since my landscapes are not a true representation of any real place, but instead, of many places and from my own imagination, It is my hope that these visuals can lend themselves to an awareness of one’s sensibility in relation to the natural world. It is my conscious effort to use these compositional elements to further emphasize this sensibility of nature in my work, giving the viewer an enlightened feeling of renewal that one may be fortunate to bear witness. This is nature's raw and naked beauty."
Besides working on her own work, she advises high school students as they apply for colleges, teaches private lessons ins her home studio, and does workshops and demos for many organizations. Please inquire if you are interested in any of these things.
She is also a member and a trustee of the Attleboro Arts Museum, where she does everything from painting walls to lighting exhibits.
She is also a member of Oil Painters of America.
