I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, a sunny, cultura-rich land where la gente are the majority. As a child I spent my days doodling unicorns and puppies and people and anything that caught my fancy. Drawing was my life, and I dreamed of one day being an artist.

After high school, I left town for a bit to attend Yale University, but ran back to Texas as soon I’d tossed my graduation cap in the air. I got a “real” job in advertising, where I met my wonderful husband Victor. In 2005 I got a little brave and decided to step into art full time, for the first time. I spent a year re-creating the Mexican Loteria, updating it to reflect the symbols and culture I knew – the “Tex Mex” version. The My Loteria game and corresponding line of kitchenware  appeared in H-E-B grocery stores and boutiques around the country…it was pretty cool 🙂

Fast forward to today and I’m the proud mom to two awesome girls, and a professional muralist, sign painter and portrait artist. Please visit my social media channels or web site to see examples of my work, or email me at Cristinapaints@gmail.com for more information.
