Christina Major was born in Concord, New Hampshire in 1982. She has lived all over the world including Hawaii, France, New York and more currently Florida. Christina has achieved her MFA at Florida Atlantic University and has exhibited throughout South Florida.
Her work has been collected both nationally and internationally. Christina Major is a portrait painter interested in the ways the identity of both artist and subject can coexist in a painting. Major’s graduate thesis exhibition, Components of self, evolved from her desire to combine large scale portrait painting with writing.
She developed methods of using paint to express a merging of herself with the individual painted in the portrait, resulting in a hybrid of herself and the person depicted.
