I’m working on two series of 12 postcards each. One side you (or your children) can color. The other side has an image of MY postcard-sized original watercolor. I have a one-person show at the North End Gallery, Leonardtown, MD, coming up in Oct. 2017 where I will have ALL the original paintings from the series on display! Packages of postcards, with coloring pencils, are available for sale now!
This invitation for my October Show is also a coloring postcard. This is available for FREE at the North End Gallery, my Back Porch Store, and other places until October. The theme of the show is “Food and Farms”. There will be special farm related talks, food, and other activities all month!

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 37 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 3 children’s books. “A Micro-Chip on my Shoulder; A True Story of a Little Poult” written and illustrated by Christina Allen. “Momma Tree” was written by Charles Long and illustrated by Christina. It was published internationally by Dragon Tree Press. And, “A Farmer’s Alphabet” written by Charles Long, Illustrated by Christina Allen, and published by Corn Crib Publishing.
Christina’s micro-publishing company called “Corn Crib Publishing” published “A Micro-Chip On My Shoulder; A True Story of a Little Poult” internationally, as a hardcover. AND it has been released as an ebook for Kindle!! (Look for it on Amazon.)
Christina got her BFA from the University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI and her Master’s from Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI.
