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.

Worth embraced the panther as a symbol of hope and strength. This painting depicts a downtown Fort Worth street scene in the 1950’s, complete with a sleeping panther.”
