Christina Margaret Cervantes
Hi, I’m Christina Cervantes, and among other things I’m an emerging artist.
I tend to experiment in groups or “series,” with materials and subjects that currently ignite my passion or imagination. Every once in a while I make something I like. I always learn something. But being honest to my emotions and impulses is probably the most important thing to me when I’m creating–beauty being optional.
Being self-“taught” probably helps me stay true to my impulses, and often gives my creations a primitive appearance. “Experimental” is more accurate, as I haven’t gone to any great lengths to teach myself about art techniques. I currently tend to create using found objects and materials (for example watercolors or oil paints that have been given to me, or items that I’ve collected over the years), or objects I can most easily acquire. Art is therapeutic to me, and when I want to create I want to do it immediately!
