Artist Spotlight – Christina Welch & Soho Artist Acrylics
About Christina Welch
Christina Welch is a self-taught mixed media artist originally from Western New York. Currently, she resides in the quaint town of Franklinton, North Carolina. Starting at the age of 4, she was taught crocheting by her grandmother. Since then, she developed a love for the Arts including bead painting, jewelry design, baking, and 36 years of experience as a hairdresser. This has led to her passion for teaching fluid arts to 50,000 plus viewers on her YouTube channel, Christina Welch, which she started from the ground up. She has also created a Facebook Group, ‘Pourage Posse with Christina Welch’, to help other artists with questions and talk about new techniques in the pouring community. Those viewer numbers are growing by the hundreds each day.
After recently introducing her husband to the art community, she has opened the doors of her “Pour’age” garage studio to teach her art techniques in one-on-one workshops. She also sells (locally and in her Etsy shop) her unique and exclusive art, beads, and jewelry.
While Christina has loved painting and drawing all her life, she only began pouring fluid acrylics about two years ago. Christina works exclusively in acrylics and primarily enjoys this medium to create beautiful pieces of abstract art.
“I have found them to be incredibly pigmented, as well as mixing wonderfully with additional mediums to create more color per bottle. SoHo Acrylic paints provide the color vibrancy and consistency to pour on both canvas and birch boards. I have created hundreds of works of art using the beautiful Soho Urban Artist Acrylics, with this and my well-known techniques, I continue to create, innovate, and inspire others to pursue their artistic passions. “
