Christina’s Autobiography:

I make quilts, but mine are probably unlike anything your grandmother ever made (unless you had one very hip grandmother).

In my work, no subject matter is off-limits, nor any construction method.  Up until now, my quilts have reflected the physical, social, spiritual, and historical worlds as I perceive them, in all their beauty, complexity, simplicity and emotion.  And dogs. Several of my works have been of my dog, Dutch; I believe Dutch should earn his keep, and he enjoys being my model.

My work has been displayed in such places as my very own living room, Grand Central Terminal and the International Quilt Festival.  I post the whereabouts of my quilts on my Facebook page.

In addition to making quilts, I am a wife, mother, dog walker, and recently have taken up the sport of curling.  I am a member, and past CT state representative to the international art quilt organization Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA).
