Christina Nelson

"My work takes inspiration from the colours and elements of nature, experiences and patterns. I explore line and love using colour to follow my instincts in creating contemporary art."

Sanctuary - Pen on fine tooth white paper 59.4 x 42 cm

Living in Australia, Christina has a degree in Science with First Class Honours in Biochemistry. Her work explores line and colour as a gateway to expression and interpretation using the medium of pen. Nelson's first solo exhibition at Gasworks Arts Park titled 'Ley Lines' reflected a creative journey into line and colour taken over a year. The exhibition was mentioned in The Age M Magazine. Following the success of her first solo show, she exhibited at The West Gippsland Arts Centre in Warragul, Victoria (2021). The solo exhibition titled 'Sanctuary' was mentioned in the local Warragul and Drouin Gazette.

Christina has also shown her work in the Albert Park College Art Show (2020 and 2021) as well as George Hicks Foundation Contemporary Exhibition (2020) at the Victorian Artists Society and the Linden Postcard Show (2020 to 2021) in Melbourne, Victoria. Nelson has also undertaken some commissions which challenged her creatively but which she enjoyed working with the clients to make a special artwork for their living spaces.
