Cristina was born in Tokyo, Japan but moved to Compton when she was a year old. She has lived in Compton, South Gate, and Gardena and currently resides in Gardena. Her art is influenced by LA street culture and she creates her pieces through the lens of a lesbian, biracial woman. She began getting into the arts through graffiti in middle school and continued to paint up until high school. After high school, Cristina began to venture out and started getting into different styles. She is skilled in digital art, acrylics, watercolor, and markers.
