For my pieces shown here, this is my interpretation of portraiture including people of color. Each image evokes color, detail, and pattern. I show energy through color choice and beauty through detail and pattern. I blend colors and patterns of my choosing and mostly using my imagination. Each face from every portrait is to be looked upon not so much to provoke meaning, but to show my unique style. Each gaze looking out, but not necessarily smiling at the viewer, discovering different blending techniques through my drawings and marking patterns for prints.
Christina is influenced by various art styles such as mannerism, art nouveau, art deco, and psychedelic art. Her love for color, detail, and pattern is reflected in each of her pieces. Other than drawing, Christina has experimented with printmaking and sculpture. Her early experiences creating art as a child, continued into her early adult years. Christina graduated with a degree in Art from Oklahoma State University. Christina currently resides in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she was born and raised.
Christina is a member of the Tulsa-based Black Moon Collective. Her work is featured in our exhibition Inclusion in Art at The Art Hall, December 7, 2018 through March 15, 2019.
