Christina Cobb Art

ArtPop Class of 2021

Hello, I’m Christina and welcome to my site.  I not only hope you enjoy what you see but that you find joy, freedom and playfulness in my work as well.  It is my desire that your heart will be lifted and your mind stirred. Reach out to me through my Contact page if you are interested in purchasing pieces, have inquiries or would be interested in commissioning a piece.  I can’t wait to hear from you.

A Little About Me

I have created with some variety of color on any kind of surface since I could appreciate the smell of a crayon box.  From those short fingers and tiny hands, I began to translate my world into color, layers, light, form and line.  And now, those continue to speak as my language; my way of pouring out what I take in.  Processing the rhythm of laughter, the playfulness of jazz, the jagged and smooth lines of shadows on my afternoon walks, even the feel of breathing during yoga; these become the conversations seen on canvas.  Most intimately the dialogue that occurs between my Maker and I are what drive the core of every piece.  His peace, His movement, His healing are all the “hands” creating the dance between the canvas and myself.  My art is the essence of living in my world.

Most all pieces are mixed media, including acrylic paints, oil and chalk pastels as well as graphite and collage.

All items are for sale.  Commissioned pieces welcomed.

Blog

It is here that I write about my process both in and outside of the studio, the people and places that influence my work, the space I work in and the different media I choose.  Walk with me on this journey of living and creating.  It’s an adventure.
