Christina Villa

Christina derives her inspiration from nature and ordinary encounters. Her work explores the subtleties of light, color, movement, time, texture and genuine gestures. Working in a range of mediums: acrylic, watercolor, clay, and pen, allows her to articulate different aspects of these subtleties. Alongside her practice, mentoring and educating Chicago youth has been a vital part of her work. She is currently the College Orientation Program Director at Metro Achievement Center, an after-school program for inner-city girls. Christina holds a BFA in Ceramics from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
