About Christina Altfeld: Christina Altfeld was born in Sweden and at 12 years of age emigrated to the U.S. with her family. Once in the US, she was given a Brownie Hawkeye Camera which proved to be a turning point in her life as an artist. Not yet speaking English, the photographs became her visual language as she learned more about her new home. Christina’s love for being creative continued with her introduction to printmaking over ten years ago. Once she learned more about the process, the intaglio plates seemed to be a natural extension of her photography work giving her an opportunity to expand on her initial impression of an image.  Her key influences in her art are travel, architecture and a passion for the ocean. Her love for travel has taken her throughout Europe, Asia and North Africa always with a camera by her side as fodder and inspiration for new work.  Christina’s favorite part of being immersed in art is having a vision, pursuing it and watching what really happens. Often times, the end result is completely different than originally visualized. Christina has been juried into numerous exhibits both locally and internationally, receiving recognition and prizes.
