Christina Blackwood was born, during a snow storm, in Roosevelt, Utah and grew up in Vernal, Utah and Kelseyville, California, and lived for a while in St. George, Utah. In 2009 she packed up herself and her two children and moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas. She decided to become a ceramic artist when she was sixteen and has been working, directly and indirectly, towards that since. She has been in numerous exhibitions and was a participant in the Kiln2Table experience Winter 2016. In the summer of 2016 she was awarded with a scholarship for a summer workshop residency at Watershed in Maine. She resides in Fayetteville, Arkansas with her stonemason husband, Amos, her extraordinary children: Aerilynn and Uriah, two dogs: Olivina Rosebery (r.i.p.) and Floki and cat: Milo. It is here where she attended the University of Arkansas and obtained her BFA in Studio Ceramics in the spring of 2017. Christina now is a Teaching Artist at The Community Creative Center and on the Wheel Mobile in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
