Raised in Europe, Christina was influenced by many different painting styles, from the Old Masters to Abstract Expressionists. She graduated with Highest Honors and a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Arts from Skidmore College in New York. While there, she embraced the freedom and dynamics of abstract painting. She then moved to Atlanta, studied art direction and graduated from The Portfolio Center. Christina was an art director for more than a decade, working at advertising agencies in Atlanta and San Francisco, yet she always pursued her love of abstract painting. Since 2002, she has been happy to dedicate herself completely to her art. Her work has been exhibited in galleries all over the Southeast, and many private and corporate collectors have her work on their walls. In June 2006, she was honored by being chosen and featured as the “Emerging Artist” of the month by the prestigious “Art & Antiques” magazine.
Christina’s paintings have an identifiable look, even though her style constantly evolves. Texture is a very
important aspect of her work. She applies a generous amount of acrylic paint and works in layers, letting
luminosity and color compliment and contrast. Stylistically, areas of intense activity are juxtaposed with
areas of calmness. And many of her compositions are anchored with geometric shapes and lines that can
create both balance and tension within a painting. She often works with mixed media, using charcoal,
pencil, and pastels as drawing elements.
“Since creating abstract art is such an organic process, there is no set formula or amount of time before a painting reveals itself. The process itself dictates the end result. Appreciating an abstract painting is much more about feeling it, rather than analyzing it,” she says, and she loves how this makes the experience so subjective and different for everyone. Her goal as an artist is straightforward: to create what she loves and hope that people may love what she creates.
