Always evolving’ is the best way to describe Christina Ramsey’s artistic arc of life.
Born into a creative family in Atlanta, GA, in 1970, she began selling commissioned drawings, logos and paintings at the age of 14. Selected into the first ‘Governor’s School for the Arts’ as a high school student in Kentucky, she soon thereafter enrolled in college-level art courses as part of her educational experience.
Christina broadened her artistic training with a Bachelor of Arts degree at Eastern Kentucky University, with an emphasis on metalsmithing and art history.
She is an award-winning artist who has lived and exhibited her work in many solo and juried shows in various locales, including Cleveland, OH and Louisville, KY, before settling in the Asheville area of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in 2005.
From her dual studios in Spartanburg and rural Transylvania County, a diverse mixture of art emanates: acrylic paintings, sculpture, jewelry, digitally synthesized prints, photography, and other mixed media works including fabrics.
The proximity to endless botanical subjects now plays a greater role in her newest creations, and the diversity found in our local flora and fauna, has recently become central to the symbolic imagery that her art explores in the meaning of self, our relationship to each other, and the spiritual connection we have to nature.
Christina’s interest in cultural anthropology, astronomy and natural science are often evident in her work. Her vast portfolio has garnered hundreds of patrons in the US and abroad.
Christina’s art can be found at several locations, including galleries in Asheville, Brevard and Tryon, NC, as well as Berea, Ky.
