Art Studio of Christina Keating 2011


Christina Keating has been a working artist for 22 years; her paintings have been and continue to be exhibited nationally and internationally in numerous solo and group shows.

Christina traces her “artistic ancestry” to both sides of her family.  Born in Italy, her mother was an important early influence and, as a child, Christina watched her work in textiles and clay.  Today, some of these pieces are her most prized possessions.  On her father’s side, Christina believes some of her talent was inherited through her German great grandfather, who worked as a painter of murals in some of New York’s finest homes of the 19th century.

Christina studied photography in Mexico City with Guillermo Aldana, photographer for National Geographic and Nadine Markova, photographer for Vogue.  When she returned to live in the US, she studied painting at the Art Student’s League, the School of Visual Arts and Parsons School of Design.  Upon moving to Boston, she continued her studies at the Museum of Fine Arts.

Many important collectors have acquired her work.  She was commissioned by Children’s Hospital, Boston to paint several paintings.  She can also be found in the art collection of George Washington University, Washington, DC.
