Raised in a family of artists, craftsmen, and musicians, Christina's talent was recognized at an early age. Although she studied architecture and interior design during college, it was not until she was home raising her four children that she began focusing on painting. She refined her skills in figurative painting at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art. Her innovative use of acrylic has made her a much sought after demonstrator and instructor. She is currently a Golden Working Artist representing Golden Artist Colors, Williamsburg Handmade Oils, and QoR Watercolor companies.
Christina's work has been shown at the Santa Paula Museum of Art, San Diego Museum of the Living Artist. International Museum of Contemporary Masters of Fine Art, Pacific Asian Museum and many galleries throughout the United States.
Christina is an active member of the Portrait Society of America. National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, International Society of Acrylic Painters and the California Art Club.
Christina's work is held in many private collections in the United States and Europe.
