Christina moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas in the early ’90s to attend the University of Arkansas, where she received her fine arts degree in painting. During this time Christina began visiting Italy again, including a semester abroad at the American University of Rome. She explains that these valuable visits were like a cathartic rebirth; she could feel her dormant knowledge of the language coming back, and her love of Italian design once more began to blossom within. These influences can be clearly seen in her art, whether in her landscapes or figural works. Her work has been featured in numerous gallery exhibitions and in the press, and is owned by collectors nationwide and overseas.
