My name is Christina Hess and I create my art from my orange sherbet painted studio in south Philadelphia. I paint, write, design and teach. I love food, animals, nature, and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
As a child I use to pour over my mother's extensive library, pulling each mystery and romance novel carefully off her wooden shelves, imagining what it would be like to paint each stroke of texture. That passion for creating stories through the aesthetics of paint have molded my career and life.
During weekends, I worked on thirteen oil paintings over the course of three years because I wanted to create another calendar featuring my art of historically inspired animals.
