Christina has had a passion for storytelling and art since she was a child. Her body of work spans from painting, murals, illustrations, graphic design, production, and video direction.
According to the Film Festival’s Executive Director Ross Marks, “We are delighted to continue the tradition of LCIFF Commemorative Posters extraordinarily designed by local artists.”
Christina earned her degree in graphic design and has been working in media for over a decade.
