Christina Carroll holds a B.A. in Studio Art/Design and Art History from Connecticut College, where she was introduced to monotype printmaking at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Museum School in Boston. Carroll's upbringing in California’s rustic canyons invited her to look closely at nature’s behavior and rhythms. Her creative expression in response to nature closely presented itself in both image and words, and the monotype process triggered a delightful synthesis of perception and temperament.
