The Casual Artist

-For the love of creativity

about me

Hi, I'm Christina, and I am a casual artist. I have lot's of interests and enjoy using lots of mediums. This is my second website and I intend to post new projects here on a casual basis. (You can visit my first website to see my earlier artwork) Scroll down for more information about me. I hope you enjoy this site.

For those of you who like to read, here is a little more about me: I have proclaimed myself a casual artist because I prefer to be creative without the pressure of a structured/professional practice. I created this site to reflect my genuine creativity.

I have an day job that I like, and in my free time I create things and explore different interests.

I have a bachelors degree, majored in studio art, and focused primarily in ceramics and metal smithing. After college I focused on painting. I recently started playing guitar and I have been dabbling in HTML and CSS for a few years.

I love family, friends, nature, yoga, spirituality, healthy food, music, art, science, beauty, gardening, writing, photography and lots of other stuff.

I am not sure how this site will evolve, but the freedom of having my own space to do whatever I want, however I want, is pretty exciting to me.

My hope is that you will enjoy this site and get some good energy from it.

Peace,
Christina
