My paintings have been described as elegant, complex and thoughtful. Mostly soft in palette with fluid shapes, lines and textures, they capture light and the feeling of a space, be it intimate or expansive. I work in acrylics with a new-found freedom from the subject, using nature and the figure as a point of reference and release. I find solace in painting and work intuitively toward conveying serenity and a place calming to the mind.
About the Artist:
Christina Hammill Paul has been painting on and off since her teen years. After majoring in fine art in college, she built a career as a graphic designer and art director. There was never enough time to devote to her own art. Now semi-retired and recently relocated to WNY, she paints every day in her Orchard Park studio. Her current mentor is William (Skip) Lawrence.
Christina received a B.A. in Art from St. Elizabeth College in New Jersey. After college she lived in New York City for twelve years and took extension classes in painting at The New School AND NYU, and spent several summer weeks at The Provincetown Workshop. After moving to the Boston MA area in 1979, she maintained a studio at The Umbrella in Concord MA, took part in many shows and began to sell her work. She was Creative Director at Candlewick Press, a children’s book publisher in Somerville MA, for twenty years. In 2019, she retired from that position and relocated to the Buffalo NY area. She still works part time as Creative Director at-large focusing on the design and art direction of some of Candlewick’s high profile books.
