Guest artist for June & July 2019
Following an administrative career in the City of London, Christa took up textile design and screen printing in the late 80s, followed by batik, felt- and paper making. Her work as a textile and paper artist began in earnest in 1993 when she started experimenting with commercially available papers which she worked into collage and 3D forms.
She has exhibited widely in group shows throughout the UK, and had solo exhibitions at the Barbican Centre, London and Trinity Arts Centre, Tunbridge Wells. Her work has been published in Artists and Illustrators Magazine, Fiberarts Design Book Six, Batik for Artists and Quilters, Papermaking Techniques, Batik: Transitions from Classic to Contemporary, and SATURA, the Italian cultural magazine. It is in private collections in the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Dubai and Australia.
