Christina L. Schmitt is a painter, poet and writer based in NYC. She has B.A.s in the History of Art & Architecture and in Painting/Printmaking from Brown University, where she also studied Philosophy and Classics, and an M. F. A. in Painting from the Milton Avery Graduate School at Bard. After working in Architecture (the family business) she left to pursue her creative endeavours full-time. Her recent paintings and drawings investigate interlocking and opposing colour and geometric relationships in ways that have been described as both mathematical and mystical. She is currently working on illustrating and editing a cycle of poems that personify numbers. She lives in Brooklyn Heights, not far from Walt Whitman, W.H. Auden, Truman Capote, and Gypsy Rose Lee’s former stomping grounds, and keeps a studio in DUMBO.
