Cristina Giammaria was born in Rome April 3, 1969.
She has a degree in German and English literature. She worked for 17
years for a pharmaceutical company.
The natural talent for drawing was encouraged by her parents, since she was a little girl. Her interest for exhibitions and other events in Italy and abroad, gave her the possibility to get in touch with creative environments, dealing with a large variety of artistic languages, so that she experimented different expressive techniques, such as tempera, collage and comic. Thanks to a short workshop in Rome with the spanish painter Pedro Cano she discovered watercolor. It was love at first sight, she loved the freshness and transparency of this technique. She attended for two years the lessons of the watercolor artist Lilia Bevilacqua, took part in the workshop "Fatti di segni e di parole" of the illustrator Roberta Angeletti and then continued her artistic research in a personal way. Since 2001 she exhibited in Rome and in the surroundings in solo and collective art shows and has won several prizes. In September 2006 "Frittelle d'acqua" was published by Manni, written by G. Fiori, with illustrations by C. Giammaria. Since 2010, along with two other artists she works at the cultural association "In.fatti arte" where she teaches watercolor painting for adults and children. In 2012 she attended the watercolor and oil course of Prof. Luigi Bruno at the Scuola di Arti Ornamentali of Rome.
