Christina Szakonyi

United States

Christina Szakonyi (b. 1986) is a representational artist living and working in Florida. Her interest in art began at a young age when she spent her summers drawing the characters of traditional animation and the horses surrounding her home. She later studied art in college where she earned an associate degree in graphic design. It wasn't until 2014 that she sought out more rigorous training in traditional fine arts with Jonathan Hardesty of ClassicalArtOnline and Charles Miano of the Southern Atelier. 

Selected as one of 21 Under 31 Young Artists to Watch in 2017 by Southwest Art Magazine and a member of Oil Painters of America, she strives to create timeless images of contemporary subjects.
