I'm Christina Ivelisse Morris, a new media and installation artist from Chicago. You can call me Stina for short. I love to use color, lights, digital media and occasionally sound to shift environments and create moody atmospheres.

As a fine artist originally working with light-based installations, I find myself creating a bridge between CGI/virtual art, and physical art that exists in the real world. Both mediums have intersecting themes and visuals in my work. 

 

As one of very few women of color in the CG art world, I'm proud to be a self-taught 3D artist. I use CGI to create any miniature world I can imagine, and through it I give life to pleasant memories in my mind.

Nostalgia and color are two important elements in what I create. I realize that in our youth, we felt everything so intensely. I still want to feel connected to those feelings, so I use color to bring back the heightened feelings of awareness and intensity that childhood so completely embodies. 

My work has been shown and I have given artist talks in Chicago, New York and South Korea. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Art, Media and Design from DePaul University in Chicago.
