Christina Burch has been deeply engaged with art from a young age. She had her first formal drawing lesson at five and by eight years old, she was learning oil painting. Growing up in Nashville, Christina was surrounded by art books and was encouraged by her mother to make art. Her high school teacher helped her put together a portfolio that got her into the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design where she majored in printmaking. Christina studied abroad in Rome, Italy then moved to New York City after graduation. She attended a graduate program through NYU and received her master’s in painting, splitting her time between NYC and Venice, Italy. Years later, Christina decided to study acupuncture and oriental medicine and received a second master’s degree. Through her work as both an artist and acupuncturist, Burch seeks to help people come to a greater understanding of the dynamic energy that supports the physical body and our interconnectedness with every other living thing. She now lives and works in a Buddhist community in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Christina has done special projects for major brands like Swarovski and Salvatore Ferragamo.
