Her relationship with art arises from an early age. Cristina has always been a natural observer, attentive to people and details. She found in art a way to expand the plane of his observations and explore their meanings.
Cristina had her first contact with a painting studio at the age of 15 and has since been exploring art in a self-taught way. He recently joined the Atelier Internacional de Belas Artes, under the guidance of the artist Rui Carruço. Dance and photography also represent a way of feeling and observing life.
