About Christina Knapp

Events, ideas and music are sometimes a starting point for my work. Color and texture are paramount and I allow each piece to develop and morph as it will. Whether painting, creating a collage or making sculpture, it is a similar voyage. I embrace accidental results and will paint over or reassemble sculptures at times. If you see something you really like, you should purchase it as it may not remain the same in my hands.

I welcome the magic which can happen during the process of creation.
