About

Welcome to my little online art store.

My name is Christina. I appreciate you visiting my shop and sharing your interest in arts and crafts. I have enjoyed doing artwork since I was a child. I started out with basics, drawing and using pen and ink. About five years ago I started painting with Acrylics. After and introduction to Oils by my dad, who is also an artist, it has become my sole material.

My inspiration usually comes from the outdoors, or a really good Pearl Jam song :) When I decide to tackle an idea I have for a painting my goal is to have what I'm feeling about the subject matter show in the painting.

Whether it be the oceans crashing waves, a quiet trail in the woods, or a super cute pet friend! I find painting with emotion is one of the most difficult things to do...harder if I get too focused on what I "should" be doing .

I do study on my own and try learning new techniques but I will never let myself get lost in the technical side of things. I want to keep an even balance of technique and freedom. That way I will always be able to enjoy what I am doing and to feel good about it. And hopefully other people will also feel good when they look at my work!

Thank you so much for visiting my shop. Any comments or suggestions are always appreciated. If you are interested in my works in progress or items I have already sold please follow the links listed below.
