A B O U T
Hello, my name is Cristina, I was born and live on Madeira Island, in the North Atlantic Ocean. This is where I get the greatest inspiration to create, as it is an island blessed with magnificent expressions of Nature, that are in some places in their purest and wildest state.
For more than 20 years, I have been dedicated to painting and other forms of artistic expression. It took a lot of resilience and patience to find the means and tools to bring my dreams to life. Fortunately, with the Internet, this great network that unites us, a whole world of new possibilities and hope has opened up.
Directly from my studio, I will share with you everything I have learned over the years, and I hope to be able to help you and make your journey lighter and more beautiful.
In this sharing space, we will create and find the tools to expand and develop creativity, and beyond. We will focus on total surrender to the creative process.
Art is something substantially internal, a way of breathing and living.
We will create with our Hands, with our Imagination, and especially with our Hearts. So that, in a fluid way, magic can enter and give body to your dreams.
