Introducing myself and my journal

Posted September 26, 2014 from United States

About Me: My name is Christiana and I am an artist living in Portland, Oregon. I believe in the power of art bringing about transformation in the viewer, the artist, and to the larger world context. My art studies have brought me all over the world and through my many travels I've witnessed the ways gender inequality keep women's voices hidden. My paintings attempt to cultivate empathy and portray women of color from around the world in positions of power. Portraiture in it's finest form gets at the essence of who someone is. I hope with my work to pay homage to women. Shed light on their stories. Bring awareness about to their cause. And represent them in all of their beauty, power, and grace.

My Passions: Art, Travel, My dog, Coffee, Journaling

My Challenges: Taking Risks, Speaking up, Anxiety

My Areas of Expertise: Painting, Drawing, Graphic Design, Conversation

    You work sounds amazing! The efforts to raise equality and encourage "self" in women is a timeless subject. I'm excited to hear more from you.

    Warmly, Della Rae
