Work history

Currently

Painter

Freelance

Jan 2004
  • Cristina Castañeda is a self taught artist from Barcelona (Spain). She started painting and creating as a child, becoming her favorite games and entertainment. Specially during holidays in the family's country's side house, she would spend hours playing with charcoals, acrylics and building little monsters with the raw clay grabbed directly from the mountains. Maybe that's the main reason why she still loves playing with materials and creating textures on her paintings. After several years developing a career in business, in parallel to her artistic growth, a life-changing experience reoriented Cristina's attention to a self development and spiritual path, which has also been reflected in her latest years of painting.
