Christina Mrozik’s illustrations are a thing of beauty. Using pen, marker, and watercolor, as well as graphite and acrylic, her creations are as delicate as they are surreal. “I feel like art acts as a mirror,” said the mixed media artist in a chat with Your Creative Push podcast. “It is revealing the parts that are inside of you already and you’re just putting them on paper. Then you have something to look at that informs you about your inner world. So it’s this back and forth process.”
Graduating from University with an emphasis in illustration and currently based in Portland, Oregon, Mrozik has worked with international galleries, as well as arts education nonprofit groups. “Your art should be a reflection of yourself and the only reason it should stay the same is if you do,” she stressed. “If you’re on a path of growing and shifting, your work should grow and shift with you. You should feel like you have permission to allow it to change.”
“There are so many times where I don’t really have a clear idea at all, I just know that I’m feeling creative. I’ll just sit down at a piece of paper and see what’s in there,” Mrokzik added.
