Welcome to Carenly Curated! A mini series within my Thoughts from the Studio blog that will highlight other amazing artists! As a firm believer in community over competition & artists supporting artists, what better way that to demonstrate that then by spotlighting fellow artists whose work I love!

So for this artist spotlight, I would like to introduce you to the work of Christina Sorace MacKinnon. Hailing from New Jersey, USA, Christina creates abstract mixed media paintings.
There is something that is so playful and carefree about these works, that combined with her use of color is what draws me to the paintings the most. Adding expressive layers of line-work and swooshes of color, the paintings drawn me in as if each image is its own little imaginary world I want to explore, and the longer you look at them, the more little intricacies you see.
