"This morning we rise to the call of the day
It's chillier than what we expected
Lack of sleep deprives me
The sense maker
does not want to let go of her control
But she never really had it to begin with
Now I prepare
Another morning rush
Panic makes me shake, scream, and cry
Curling into littleness
She wants to be outside
But the day goes on as it must
A student to study
Me looking at me looking at you looking at me
It is time"
"Panic" by Christina Culverhouse

“Art is a place for the conscious and unconscious parts of myself to communicate and express through the creative experience, and an opportunity to process and portray these experiences onto the canvas.”
Christina is a dedicated artist and educator with over 20 years of experience in the fields of creative arts, education, and leadership. As a visual artist, Christina has an eclectic body of work in multi-media platforms. She has designed four websites and has landed several venues in Austin Texas to showcase her art. She holds three degrees from St. Edward’s University in Austin: a Bachelor of Arts in Art, a Master of Arts in Teaching, and a Master of Arts in College Student Development.
Christina has an exceptional eye for innovation and creativity, extensive skills in strategic planning and leadership, as well as experience in education, assessment, and research. During her internships at St. Edward's University, she applied her skills to further the growth and development of the university's student service programs and departments. She had the leading role of establishing and managing social media platforms, brand identity, and enhancing the design and layout of websites for these programs and departments.
Currently, Christina is working as a freelance artist where she employs her talents and skills in painting, drawing, photography, layout production, and web design.
Christina says, “Perhaps the most important layer is the story I have about myself that formed from one or more experiences. I spend a lot of time thinking about what 'makes me tick,' so to speak, both on the conscious and unconscious level - and all of that which 'makes me tick' directly impacts and influences the everyday choices, from the mundane to the seemingly more profound. So, as I create, all of this is interplaying in my mind, my heart, my body, and is then portrayed through poetic language and/or images on the canvas.”
