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 about 35 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. She has illustrated two children’s books. “A Micro-Chip on my Shoulder; A True Story of a Little Poult” written and illustrated by Christina Allen, won the Indie Award for Excellence in Children’s Books, non-fiction. “Momma Tree” was written by Charles Long and illustrated by Christina. It was published internationally by Dragon Tree Press. “Momma Tree” just received The Mom’s Choice National Book Award!
Christina has recently started a micro-publishing company called “Corn Crib Publishing”. It has just published “A Micro-Chip On My Shoulder; A True Story of a Little Poult” internationally, as a hardcover. AND it has just been released as an ebook for Kindle!! (Look for it on Amazon.) Her third illustrated book will be coming out later this year as a softcover, hardcover, and an ebook.
Christina got her BFA from the University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI and her Master’s from Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI.
