Choice Is Painful by Christa

Liking nothing better than depicting nature and creating elegant humanlike animal characters, to date Christa's work has included 3 illustrated books for children, one of those was awarded at Bologna International Children Book Fair (2019). Christa is a passionate naturalist and introspective artist based in Barcelona. She values and enjoys the freedom of the creative process in which she explores the limits of imagination and boundaries of technique. When it comes to drawing, she starts from the most abstract part, playing with composition and color, in order to sculpt within this space of possibilities the protagonists of her stories and then fill them with realistic details.​


Once you start going in depth on a discovery, and you start pulling the thread, you experience lots of dilemmas. Because what you see, you cannot unsee, and thus can never return to the comfortable lie you were living.
