Christina Watts has a distinctive art style that is often bold and falls into the impressionism painting category. She works predominately with watercolour, acrylic and inks.  Her art begins with either a loose plan using one of her own reference photos, or she will pour and carve the paint into the unique images that emerge.  Christina puts considerable thought into the colour choice and composition of each piece.  She is passionate about visual arts and the ambiance they provide in our homes, workplaces, and community.

Christina was born in the small town of Smithers, British Columbia, Canada in 1978.  She has remained in Northern BC and currently lives in Prince George.   She learned her painting techniques from accomplished local artists, art workshops and through pure observation and experimentation. Christina is an active Community Arts Council – Artist Workshop member.  Her work has been in group exhibitions at the Studio Fair and in the Group Gallery’s ‘Best Damn Little Art Auction’.
