Notes of Gratitude
“My one on one with Cristina was super duper wonderful. She was very humble in her approach to her artwork and techniques. I felt comfortable asking all of my art/paint questions. She showed me what she uses to grind rocks, types of stone/rocks, and how she mixes pigments to make paint, how to properly store the binder(s)/pigments/paints and methods that have worked for her that she has found useful in her journey as an artist. Cristina was able to answer questions I had about what brushes I should use for what type of art style I want to practice towards and introduced me to new art supplies I can use as well as going about in making a canvases process for her specifically.
Not many artists are open to teaching and showing their techniques, or behind the scenes / methods that ALSO work with the earth in their process and that was important for me to find a teacher that thinks and works like that with the earth in mind.. and it’s really refreshing and beautifully magical that Christina as an artist, does that. She shares what she has already learned, not only techniques but philosophically too her beliefs towards earth and I am very grateful I got to chat with her in the time I was able to have with her. We shared a lot of similarities! I had a great time.” Estefany – USA
“This is beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with me!!

“It is poetry. I am deeply touched by the subtle and serene beauty, but very intense, and the harmony of this painting. I have been contemplating it these days when I am working at the gallery. It strongly holds my attention and heart. The painter must be someone highly sensitive, spiritual and with a deep connection with nature.” “It is not only the sound of silence, it is the voice of Fine Silence.” “Me contemplating this tree makes me feel deep, peaceful, travel to another dimension and experience beauty at a divine level”.
