Christina M. Anderson | Fine Art

Bio:

Christina is native to the Twin Cities and currently lives and works in Minneapolis. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Studio Art from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Christina has worked with a variety of mediums including, clay, metal, wood and wax. She also enjoys photography and often uses her photos as references for her paintings. She is currently focused on painting two dimensional surfaces.

Christina's philosophy on art is an open view that embraces all forms of creativity and expression. She is intrigued by metaphors, abstract ideas, human behavior and spirituality. Vibrant color and images from the natural world are recurring motifs in her work.

You may find her roaming through local parks and neighborhoods looking for inspiration for her paintings.

Artist's Statement:

My hope is that my artwork will bring the viewer to a universal place, a place of serenity based in reality. I want my artwork to remind people of what is good and real, what is attainable. I want to take them to a spiritual place where they can confirm or reevaluate what is important and essential to them. I want to evoke peaceful, sustainable inspiration. I consider my work to be an expression of the exploration of myself and my position and responsibility in the world as a creative being.
