Cristina's whose work is featured above shared this with us about showing her work:

[blockquote source=""]I have a portfolio at home of drawings upon drawings on white paper. Unless I am in an exhibition, they tend to stay in that portfolio and that is how I had been working for a long time.  I wanted to try something new, so the last few years I have challenged myself to figure out how to make art both functional and live-able. I am inspired by the psychedelic art of the 1960s, pattern play and have always been fascinated with detail. I have been scanning my old drawings, digitally coloring them and chopping them up to create tapestry patterns that can potentially be used for textiles and wallpaper. I like the idea of living with art, but not necessarily having it be a canvas on the wall. I may return to "fine art" one day, but for now I am enjoying the uncomfortable feeling of pushing my limits to make pictures that everyone can understand and enjoy, without changing the style I like working in the most, pen and ink.[/blockquote]
