Originally from Columbia, Maryland, Christina currently resides on Galveston Island, Texas, just south of Houston. Christina is an illustrator, graphic designer and mixed media artist working on a range of projects including children’s book illustration, editorial illustration, book design, stationery design and Judaica. While largely self-taught, Christina credits a good deal of her early artistic development to spending time at the Maryland Institute College of Art throughout high school and on college breaks, where she took a variety of courses in drawing, painting and design whenever possible.
Some of Christina's recent honors include a 2014 IPPY Gold Medal Award along with author Rabbi Shoshana Hantman for the cover design of Hantman's Passover Parodies: Short Plays for the Seder Table and a Royal Dragonfly 1st Place Book Award in the category of Spirituality, Religion and Philosophy along with author Debo Dykes for the illustration of Stellarella: It's Saturday!. A solo exhibition of my mixed media Judaica artwork is on display at the Deutser Gallery of the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center in Houston through October 21, 2014. The exhibition is a selection of 35 pieces from her ongoing personal endeavor, The D'rash Design Project - learn more about it here.
