Hello, I’m Cristina. I’m an artist, photographer, writer, and teacher in love with creativity, visual storytelling, flowers, simplicity, and slow living.
I’m an introvert and HSP (Highly Sensitive Person), and when I’m not creating something you can usually find me curled up on the sofa reading a good book, pottering around the garden, or walking in the woods.
When I was 11 years old I dreamed of being an artist, living in England (I’m Italian) or in a light-filled attic in Paris, painting the day away – very bohemian and somewhat clichéd, I know!
I’ve lived in Italy, Ireland, and England, and now I’m in France, in the beautiful Limousin area, with my husband and our two feline companions.
I have a background in interior design, and my work gradually evolved into interior styling, until I finally combined two of my passions – creating vignettes and taking photographs – into a new career.
I adore flowers, all things botanical, and tea. I take my photographs in natural light, to create images that feel authentic, evoke emotions, and tell stories. Photography for me is all about transforming one moment in time to tell a whole story: visual storytelling.
I’m passionate about sharing what I know, inspiring and helping others. If you’d like to learn how to create beautiful images for your social media, blog, or online shop, please have a look at my Mentoring page and at my e-courses page.
I also enjoy working with a few selected ethical brands and companies who believe in creative visual storytelling, so if you are looking for fresh, inspirational photographs to share your vision on social media, websites, and editorials, please get in touch and I’ll be delighted to talk about how we can work together.
You can also find me on Instagram, where I share my flower images and love for nature and the seasons.
