An artist and Educator based in London, Christina graduated in 2009 from Kingston University with a First Class Fine Art Degree. After several years working within the creative industries in London, Christina completed her PGCE at The Institute of Education UCL. Following this, she also studied for an MA in Art and Design in Education, finishing with a distinction. As an artist, Christina works predominantly in textiles, in particular hand embroidery, her work explores themes of identity, motherhood and the universal/personal lived experience. She has exhibited regularly in London, and organises workshops and art events.

‘My work deals with body image pre and post pregnancy, the overwhelming feelings of your body no longer being your own when looking after young children, and the significance of mundane moments such as dozing with children who rarely sleep. With a quality of line that is abstracted and almost dreamlike, and a focus on hand embroidery - a slow and meditative process, my work links back to themes of maternal mental health and exhaustion as well as exploring what it means to be both an artist and a mother.’

"Before Subject Matter I would never have thought about being an
art-buyer. It felt like a world I didn't understand and didn't belong
in. You have opened my eyes!"

Cheryl | London

"I was amazed by the buying experience. I was contacted right after I confirmed the purchase and was taken care of all the way to the delivery, and even after. Never had such a friendly and professional service when buying a piece of art."
