Proud member of the Puddle Jump Collective! Meet my fellow illustrators here!
Hello! I'm Christina Brown. This is not going to be your average "About Me" section. I won't go on to say that I graduated from a prestigious art school, or that I've worked alongside many top-dog artists. I won't tell you of how my work went on to be chosen as a cover for the New Yorker, or how my own series of children's books are on the best sellers list. And I definitely will not tell you of how I won a Caldecott.
I'm sure at this point you may be wondering If this is my way of indirectly telling you of my success. But, it isn't. What I will tell you, is that I am a simple person with extraordinary aspirations. I will tell you, that though I have had my share of formal training, I am a self-taught artist. I will tell you, that I have such a drive and passion for creating that it literally keeps me up at night (working on projects). I will tell you that I can take criticism, that I am open to new ideas, and am willing to make changes for the betterment of my work. And lastly, I will tell you to encourage me as a young illustrator, so that one day, I WILL write all the the things in my Bio that I just told you I wouldn't.
Christina Brown is a Louisiana based artist who resides in Lafayette with her husband and son.
