Christina Mingard is a painter living in the North of England. Her work is mostly associated with the landscape around her home in Bardon Mill a small village in Northumberland. She almost always works from life and is inspired by whatever she sees from the window of her studio, her garden, or whatever she encounters when away from home. Christina's paintings are very colourful and incorporate many aspects of landscape, most notably, trees, the marks made in the landscape by people, the effects of light and the passage of time. Normally she paints to music, often Radio 3 and this has the tendency to influence the final painting, in colour and mood.
Christina has exhibited her paintings in many solo exhibitions in Northumberland, Cumbria and North Yorkshire. She is a member of Network Artists in Northumberland and is a graduate of Harrow College of Art. Christina was artist in residence at the Village Bakery in Melmerby from 2007-2009. Christina's work is held in many private collections throughout the UK and also in other parts of the world including the USA, Austria and France.
