Christina Alessi is a visual artist and musician in Essex County. Her work includes painting, illustration, collage, and fiber arts. Her pieces are often inspired by a love of nature and respect for its sustainability.
Christina is primarily self taught and has spent over two decades experimenting with mediums including embroidery, crocheting, knitting, and needle felting, and even paper-making. Christina was an early adopter of art journaling and considers it to be one of her most valuable tools.
Sharing the therapeutic benefits of art with others has been a lifelong passion. Christina has led creative workshops at the Montclair Adult School, Stevens Tech, with local Girl Scout troops, as well as privately.
