Christina originally studied English in Ohio and while there fell in love with art. She envied how artists could create worlds with paint and brush: vivid vibrant worlds full of rich color and form. She started with painting her poems in simple forms. Later, she took night classes to fill in some of the gaps in her training. In some circles, she is known as a spiritual artist but she sees herself as a poet who loves to paint. Most days, you can find her under a tree with a good book or in front of canvas
