Hello! I’m Cristina
I was born and live on Madeira, a volcanic Island in the North Atlantic Ocean. Which preserves a Native Forest, that are in some places in their purest and wildest state. Being it, the main inspiration in my creations.
In 2009, during a levada walk to a waterfall in Ribeira de João Gomes, in Funchal, I found a warm brown iron oxide, an earth pigment, which inspired me to create a new painting collection, for a Gallery. Since that day, my vision about the whole creative process expanded. I was looking to give a new meaning to my work, so that it would be more in harmony with nature. And after a few years, I chose to paint only with natural pigments directly from the Land, such as clays, iron oxides, plants… which I find here in Madeira and from all over the world. Incorporating in my paintings the colors found in these landscapes.
Welcome and thank you for being here.
