THE STORY UP TO NOW..
Cristina Celestini has been drawing since she could hold a pencil. She took her first steps as an artist copying from the Masters in churches and squares in her native Rome while studying Modern Languages there. Following travels in South America, she continued to experiment with her art when she moved to the UK to pursue her career in teaching and to bring up her family with her British husband. In stolen moments between her career and her family, Cristina has grabbed any opportunity to learn all the time drawing, sketching and painting to find her voice. In May 2018 she was voted full Member of the Birmingham society of Artists and her work is in collections in the UK and Europe.
