Christina is best known for her vivid imagery and bright color choice. She loves to use every color on the palette in one work of art. Her painting style would be described as impressionistic. She loves to move the brush in different directions when she paint to make your eyes move all around the canvas.
Christina grew up in Gentilly, a beloved gumbo community, with her grandparents constantly in view. They called her an ol' soul mainly because she loved to listen to their storytelling. She would race back to the family room and intently draw what she remembered hearing and seeing. These moments enriched her love for art. She would always try new sketches, and experiment with different images and colors.
Christina deeply cherishes how my New Orleans heritage shines through her paintings and artistic creations. Her artistry is super bright because she is inspired by God. The illumination on each canvas declares He is her joy. She paints with happiness because He makes her feel brand new everyday.
