Two figures pose facing each other in this diptych by artist Cristina Lopez Casas. One wears a white textured cloak holding a paint palette filled with eyes, and the other gazes back while holding a squid-like creature. Cristina expresses the importance of friendship with other women artists. "The support and companionship that springs spontaneously after understanding that we need each other to fuel our art are incomparable," says Cristina. "This painting went through many layers of editing until the characters and the colors were detailed enough to match the feeling of well-being that I was aiming to achieve."

Artist Cristina Lopez Casas paints deeply personal and stirring portraits of women. “My work is a record of what a woman can do as an alternative to following the traditional role of family pillar,” says Cristina. “It gives me constant joy and peace, it is essential to my mental well being. Yes, art is therapy. And so much more once it connects to another woman's life.” Growing up in Chile, Cristina studied graphic design. She desired to be a painter but many obstacles delayed her dream. Soon after school, she married, had two sons and moved to California to start a business selling wrought iron furniture. Many years passed before an unexpected move to Mexico City allowed her to return to school for a Masters in Painting. Today, Cristina lives in Oaxaca, where she enjoys the support of a vibrant arts community. She paints in a small bamboo workshop on the roof of her house with a fantastic view of the mountains. When she’s not painting, she enjoys spending time with her partner, walking and talking about science, philosophy, art and food.
