Her goal is to encourage the creative spirit and full expression of each student as they explore and experiment with a variety of media, techniques, and processes. Through exposure to the art world, students will have a better understanding and appreciation of the visual world they inhabit.

"Christina, When I saw your work, I knew I wanted to have our house painted by you. How surprised I was on my birthday! I can't imagine the time and effort you invested. Such attention to details - right down to the dogs collars. A special gift that I will always treasure. Fondly, ... A. Kaminski"
