Christina Fitch has a Master of Fine Arts in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design.  She graduated from Texas Woman’s University with a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education. Fitch is a mixed media, figurative artist. She has taught high school visual art for twenty-three years and is currently teaching at Timber Creek High School in Keller ISD. She resides in North Richland Hills, TX.

Her current series draws inspiration from fading memories and personal narratives. The artwork will use layers to explore family experiences and memories. She is also interested in exploring how family dynamics stretch across generations and impact future generations.  How did the relational complexities of her grandmother and mother filter down through her into her relationship with her children?  She sees these relationships as layers that makes us who we are.  She hopes to express this through the layering of images using a variety of media.

    ‘Absentee Father’ was created from old photographs and enhanced by the emotional memories of my mother, as she described the events of her childhood to me. Follow the scenes progression from left to right. 

    The left is her family at an early age and all was happy with her father devoted to her and her mother. The progression follows as her parents divorced when she was 2 years old and she became less and less of a part of her father’s life. Her father’s remarriage and building of his new family reduced her time with him until it was only at Christmas.  At age eighteen, my mother married my father, Bill Alexander. My grandfather was invited to the wedding and made an appearance but it was the first time he had even seen the man that married his daughter.”
