Everyday I log onto my Tumblr account and am bombarded by all the posts I receive from fashion and art blogs. Every once in a while some art work is interesting, but rarely, I find things that are incredible (in my opinion, at least.) One of these artists who represents the latter, is Christina Mrozik. She is from Grand Rapids, Michigan, and her art presents her exposure to nature at an early age. I myself found her work to be entirely captivating. The way she utilized natural subjects in a highly emotional way, while remaining detail oriented was something that I had not seen before. Her work presents a breathtaking look at the field of illustration, where acrylic and ink fuse together to create these tragically beautiful creatures. Whenever I look at her work, I feel like I am witnessing a private moment, and that I am afforded the opportunity to view it. I look at her art, and see her strengths as emulating nature’s details. While there is this element of the truth, there is also a certain type of haziness and surrealist nature. There is something so wonderful, in her use of color, line, brush work and composition that arrests the viewer. Here are some images of her artwork;
I really appreciate Mrozik’s dedication to her fans and supporters. When I still had a facebook I had liked her page on there first. Throughout the weeks I would see updates of her works and other events that she was participating on with fellow artists. When I was deciding to delete my facebook for good I was kind of upset that I wouldn’t be able to see the progress of some of the artists I had adamantly followed. I was really pleased when I found out that she had a Tumblr blog. While her updates there are not as frequent, I love the interaction she has with all of her followers. She often answers questions people have about her work and medium choice. She is also incredibly humble in her acceptance of compliments towards her work.

Mrozik is certainly an incredibly gifted; interesting and thoughtful person, Who makes her art just as interesting as she is. I look forward to seeing more of her work and her progress throughout the years.
