Cristina Sayers is a visually inspired intuitive Collage artist.
She holds an authentic eye and distinct vision in her selected medium. Her collage art origins is from handmade, old-fashioned cut and paste collage.  She makes this differentiation because so much collage work, on the internet, is composed digitally.
Influenced by Architecture, 80’s surf culture, local historical images, primary colors, neon road  signs, humor, Andy Warhol, billboards, racial equality, recycled materials, elements of nature, sea, and satire. Her translation of collage art allows a visual humorous expression into what she considers the tongue-in-cheek joy of an artistic life. Cristina delights in the process of and finds satisfaction within the production of Collage artwork. Within these paintings is her vision of Santa Cruz life, as a forever changing and growing artistic inspiration.
