Christina’s the Amazing Artist- Bibolography
My name is Christina Long, I was born (1989) in a city called Los Angeles California. I still remember exactly how my interest in drawing and painting was born. When I was about in the age of 18, I first discover myself as artist when I was drawing self portraits of my things I seen around the house. Between some old stuff I found my old sketch portfolio that I did in high school. It showed stuff that I did from stick figures to my amazing artwork that I did when I got really professional with my amazing art piece. I enter this art contest for Maxine Waters’s art competition and I won first place in her district in California. My first art piece was Martin Luther King it was done in mixed media. I started this first drawing when I was in high school in the year of 2007. But my masterpiece, in a matter of way it impressed me. I studied the scene different artwork history and get to know more about a lot of the artists. Up until that moment I was sent two tickets to fly out to Maxine Water’s district office in Washington, Dc for the ceremony with others artist across the globe from different high school. Later when I came in the living room I asked my parents about the painting and drawing. My father liked my first drawing that I won in the art contest. He told me to continue to developed different styles of your work and I did. This is how I became a professional artist. I never realized it but this must have been the moment that my creative mind was triggered. Nowadays my passion for art and music takes a different place in my life. This was the moment I picked up drawing again. I started with drawing celebrities’ portraits, abstracts and landscapes. It lasted to the summer of 2007 before I gave it a shot. I decided to start with a portrait of transparent abstract portrait of shapes.
I liked the result and decided doing more and more. I’m currently taking a 2 dimensional design class right now at West La College and next semester I’m taking a 3 dimensional design class to get my AA degree this year in 2012. My goals are to get a job in art as an artist and continuing my education for art so I can get Masters Degree in arts. If you are interested in one of these paintings I would be pleased hearing from you. Would you like to have your, your partner or children’s portrait painted, or you are looking for a unique present, perhaps I can help you.
