About Christina

I received my BFA (printmaking emphasis) from Webster University in 2004. I have been making work, exhibiting, and teaching steadily at the college level since receiving MFA from Northern Illinois University in 2007.

I began teaching as an instructor of record at NIU in the foundations program. Beginning in 2005, I taught 2D design, drawing 1, and drawing 2.

After graduating I returned to NIU to teach Drawing 1. The following spring I began at McHenry County College and have been teaching there since. The 2008-2009 academic year I had the opportunity to also teach in foundations and printmaking at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.

While at MIAD I taught Drawing 1 and Visual Communications 2: Color, Time, and Space (focusing heavily on additive and subtractive color theory) in foundations. In printmaking I had the pleasure of teaching two topics courses: Prints in Space and Printmaking with Digital Applications. Both of which I was able to structure as needed and the latter of which I had the opportunity to write entirely.

For the past five years, working at McHenry County College in Crystal Lake I have taught Drawing 1, 2, & 3, Art Appreciation, and Printmaking. The printmaking class has been revived this past year after a long period of hibernation. I was eager to play such a part in the revival of this program. While at MCC, I was also co faculty advisor to the McHenry County College art club, facilitating various group collaborative projects, installations, trips, and fundraising.

I am passionate in both my pursuits as an instructor and as an artist. Being an active and exhibiting artist keeps me equipped in the classroom. And maintaining a dialogue with my students is enriching on every level and keeps me connected to my own foundation and to the outside world. In the classroom I strive to sustain an environment that is both challenging and supportive; to foster a learning environment that hinges on dialogue and collaborative critical thinking.

While my undergraduate and graduate experiences came with an emphasis in printmaking, my pursuits as an artist have been inter-disciplinary. The work spans media; ranging from drawings and prints, to assemblage, to elaborate large scale installations.

Along with maintaining a diverse teaching record, a regular studio practice, and a thorough exhibition record, I urge to sustain involvement in the art community through other types of professional activities such as exhibition jurying and workshops.
