About the instructor: 

Cristina Hajosy is a mixed media artist, art educator and designer based in Greater Boston. She is the owner of Hajosy Arts (hajosyarts.com), an art studio of photography, printmaking, book arts, and historical decorative arts, especially paper marbling and paste paper. She is the co-founder and president of New England Book Artists (newenglandbookartists.org), a nonprofit book arts organization that has quickly grown since 2019. Her work strives to foster understanding and personal growth through book arts via art education and the creation of beautifully challenging and personally satisfying art.  

Cristina was born in Rome, Georgia to parents who were doctors. She grew up on a cattle farm with a large catfish fishery, family garden, pecan orchards, and horses alongside private school, art classes, music lessons, and country club activities. According to Cristina, “My story is a modern-day Green Acres complete with Hungarian heritage and an amusing clash between high and low cultures. "
