Artist Christina Ramsey enjoys exploring a wide variety of subjects ranging from the natural world to pop-culture franchises such as Star Wars and Dr. Who. Christina’s creative toolbox includes acrylic painting, photography, digital art, mixed media sculpture, and jewelry. Regardless of the artist’s subjects or medium her vivacious and colorful style remains a constant fixture in all of her creations.
Recently, Christina has focused on two very different bodies of work; digital, abstract mandalas and whimsical tributes to pop culture. Christina’s abstract botanical compositions are created digitally, using a process where she layers colors and patterns to suggest the presence of imagery. They are spontaneous creations that come from the self-conscious and represent a spiritual connection with nature. The artist’s pop-art style paintings are just the opposite. These are highly stylized colorful and graphic designs, which Christina creates by using acrylic paint, paperclips, and nail heads instead of brushes.
Christina’s professional career as an artist began at the tender age of 14. From that time forward the artist received formal education in the Arts first as a high school student at the Governor’s School of the Arts in Kentucky and later as a college student at Eastern Kentucky University, where she earned a BA in Metalsmithing and Art History.
Throughout Christina’s career she has won multiple awards and exhibited her art all over the United States. The artist’s work has been collected by private and corporate patrons from all over the world. Today Christina spends most of her time working at one of her private studios in Lake Toxaway, Nc and Spartanburg, SC. The artist also exhibits her art at her personal gallery the Dahliallama Art Gallery in Brevard, NC, as well as a variety of other galleries in Carolinas and Kentucky.
