Christina Allen lives in southern Maryland on a sustainable homestead with her husband Frank, cat Kiba, flock of sheep, rare Jersey Buff heritage turkeys, and heritage chickens. She has been a professional artist for 35 years and is an avid handweaver, spinner, and knitter also.
Both Christina and her husband are serious gardeners (Frank for over 60 years and Christina for over 30 years), so plants, trees, and flowers are an important part of their life and her artwork. They practice sustainable gardening and raise much of their own food on their farm using organic techniques.
She can be found most days in working in her Corn Crib Studio.
Christina got her BFA from the University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI and her Master’s from Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI.
