Profile

After a two-decade career in the graphic design field, Christina Galbiati has used this experience and passion to develop a collage aesthetic where her images blend art and design—layered, abstract word-patterns are juxtaposed with reduced form—this symbolic inspiration is the intrinsic quality that makes her work visually dynamic and memorable. Christina received her MFA from Marywood University and BFA from Kutztown University. Her studio is located in northeastern Pennsylvania; she is also an adjunct professor of design.
