Consulting Portfolio Review
Portfolio and Art Spirit consultations by Christina Elizabeth Smith of Amrta Art
Christina works with artists and creatives to bring out the unique voice of their work and elevate their creative practice and voice as an artist. Do you feel like you have something incredibly unique to say as an artist, but it is still working its way out of you? Do you feel stuck in your practice, confused by all the different advice you hear on "how" to be an artist? Do you feel like you suffer from imposter syndrome, which is holding you back from really putting your work out there?
Christina's unique background in the fine art world combined with her knowledge and study of integrative healing techniques brings together a whole new way of approaching an art career. Working with Christina is a way to get feedback on your portfolio as well as practices to heal the wounded art spirit and really trust in the one true guide you have with your art: your true nature.
Christina is the creator of Amrta Art. She is a professional painter based in Los Angeles. She is a member of the Shockboxx Gallery Program where she also acts as a curator and juror. Amrta is also a member of the Los Angeles Artists Association. Amrta Art works have been in galleries internationally and Amrta collectors span the globe from Romania, Australia, New York, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Nashville, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, North Carolina, and many more locations. The Amrta piece “The Old and The New” hangs next to an original Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol in Los Angeles. Her solo show "Integrated" in 2022 was rated by The Mag as the best California art show of 2022. This same solo show was one of nineteen galleries selected as a Featured Gallery Banner on Artsy.
