"Self Portrait", Oil on Canvas, 2017

Christina’s passion for illustration and design began at a very early age. Starting at the age of fourteen, Christina auditioned and was accepted into the prestigious Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) in Santa Ana, CA. Not only did she receive top marks studying under professional artists, she also headed the exclusive FIDM Fashion Club, producing and directing their bi-annual fashion and charity events while designing her own original clothing line for the show. 

The knowledge and experience Christina gained at OCSA moved her across the country to New York’s world-renowned fashion university, Parsons.  A fashion design major, now living in Manhattan, Christina immersed herself in the city’s fashion and art scene. 

After studying under New York’s top professionals, Christina moved back to Southern California to pursue her true passion as a professional illustrator. The experience she gained at Parsons lead her to the private university, Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD), where she studied Illustration under fine art and illustration professionals. 

Her body of work includes CD covers, custom jacket designs, music festival posters and an original mural for the LA office of the luxury jacket brand, Mighty Co. 

She currently designs and hand paints custom images for Mighty Co.’s jackets, is illustrating a children’s book, is designing and hand painting denim jackets for the band Highland Kites for their new album release show, and she is selling original art and prints as well. 

She lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
