'OCELLUS' spans 40" x 80" and is made of over 13 layers of resin, in combination with alcohol inks, pigments, acrylic paints, and of course...lots of love.

Christina Twomey Art + Design Partners with Minnesota Legend, Robyne Robinson, Former Fox 9 News Anchor & Producer, Turned Art Consultant & PR Guru Via Her Own Agency five-x-five
We are proud to announce we had the incredible opportunity to meet with Minnesota TV & News legend, Robyne Robinson, at the Hewing Hotel in the North Loop of downtown Minneapolis this morning. Robyne is a familiar face to most in Minnesota, as she was the leading prime-time news anchor & producer at Fox affiliate KMSP, also known as Minnesota 9 for 20 years.
After leaving the news, Robyne decided to pursue her lifelong passion of the arts and opened a contemporary art gallery in NE Minneapolis. Since 2014, she has worked on transforming the arts program at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport, bringing gorgeous mosaics, signature commissions, a film-screening room and a new art park planned for the future. Robyne is also a huge proponent of supporting local artists - especially women. She started her own art consulting business five-x-five to connect her incredible portfolio of connections with the talented artists she represents. We are so proud to now be one of them. When meeting with her this morning, the energy she exudes is incredibly warm & contagious, it felt like we'd known her for years. We are very excited to build our newfound partnership and look forward to sharing many great success stories in the near future!
We are happy announce a very special geode art piece of ours has just sold to a new collector and long-time friend living in Manhattan, New York City.
This artwork is composed of driftwood we collected from Big Sur, California during the weekend Bobby proposed to me - so it's truly a special piece of wood in our hearts. The artwork has gorgeous, large Brazilian amethyst crystals inlayed into the wood, which were then sealed with resin. The driftwood is hand-painted with an Ombre combination of micaceous oxide, gold, and violet acrylic paints, and were also sealed with resin.
We're excited to reveal this piece has garnered tremendous attention & inquiries - which lead us to brainstorm several new line-extensions & opportunities to expand our business. Lots more to come!

Christina Twomey Art + Design Hired to Create Wall-Sized Triptych for Minneapolis-Based Tech & Creative Agency, Humdinger and Sons
We're so excited to announce we've just been commissioned to develop a massive wall-sized triptych for the Minneapolis North Loop creative factory, Humdinger and Sons, lead by Founder & ECD Nicolas Will along with Founder & Managing Partner Andrew Berg.

Humdinger's prime downtown Minneapolis location is in the heart of the North Loop in a fabulously renovated brick & concrete warehouse space - so this statement art-piece will only add to the cool urban-story of their loft-style space.

We're so excited to share The Mayhew Inn, a top collector of ours who owns 'AGATE,' was featured in Minnesota Monthly - AND, so was our art! We're so grateful to Joel & Amy, the owners of The Mayhew, for commissioning us to create this artwork for their incredible boutique hotel in Grand Marais, MN.
Make sure to book a room this summer ASAP!
Venture to Minnesota’s North Shore and stay at The Mayhew Inn, the only Boutique Hotel in Grand Marais Minnesota.
The Mayhew Inn is located in the heart of downtown Grand Marais. The views of the harbor and bluffs along The Gunflint Trail are incomparable and are visible from the expansive rooftop decks. The Mayhew Inn is the perfect home base for enjoying the restaurants and shops in downtown Grand Marais and are all within walking distance. Enjoy day trips to Lutsen Mountain, National Parks for hiking or cross-country skiing, or up The Gunflint Trail. All are a short drive from The Mayhew Inn.
The 6 individual units that make up The Mayhew Inn are uniquely designed and built to be modular. Add to that common spaces that can be shared with larger groups, or experienced alone. The Lobby has a cozy fireplace, comfy seating for lounging, and a non-production bar with an icemaker for guests to enjoy. Entertainment opportunities in The Lobby include games for all ages, a turntable with vinyl from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and beyond as well as a large screen TV. The "Dragon Lounge" faces a majestic outdoor fireplace with a brick pizza oven. This cozy lounge is the perfect place for happy hour or a memorable nightcap.
Although The Mayhew Inn is downtown on the harbor front, it is graced with gorgeous secluded backyard courtyards and rooftop decks with breathtaking views. There are several grills on site for family BBQ’s when you aren’t enjoying all of the amazing restaurants that downtown Grand Marais has to offer. Then end your evening stargazing around the backyard fireplace.
Every day at The Mayhew Inn is magical, whether it is sunny, brisk or blustery. Nature’s year-round magic unfolds right in front of you over the greatest of lakes, Lake Superior.

Los Angeles' favorite independent artist showcase returned for its third edition March 28-31, 2019 at the Magic Box at The Reef, presenting 140 talented emerging and independent artists alongside a unique and immersive program of features.
Christina Twomey Art + Design, Booth 141
Presented by Saatchi Art, the world's leading online gallery, 'THE OTHER ART FAIR' showcases works hand-picked by a Selection Committee of art world experts. These LA fair exhibitors were selected by Shamim Momin, Senior Curator at Henry Art Gallery; Jennifer Lieu, Public Art Consultant; A. Moret, Editor-in-Chief and Head Curator at Installation Magazine; Souris Hong, Co-Founder of Creative Cabal; Glenn Lawson, Owner of Lawson-Fenning Inc.; and Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator at Saatchi Art.
'BIG SUR' (48x36 acrylic on canvas) has a very special story. This artwork was created to represent my engagement to my husband, business partner and love of my life. He proposed to me on a camping trip to Big Sur at 2am in the morning, as he surprised me while bathing at a natural hot spring carved into a cliff at the ESALEN retreat property. It was absolutely surreal to say the least and something I will never forget. In fact, it was one of the best nights of my life - only second to our wedding weekend. And now - we get to share all the emotions that went into making this representation of our love.
'BIG SUR' will be traveling today to its new home in Minneapolis, MN to one of our top collectors - and, as an added bonus, Minneapolis is where Bobby and I met originally nearly 8 years ago, so there is definitely great synergy there.
'BIG SUR' was also proudly featured in Netflix's 'To The Bone' marketing spots featuring Lily Collins & crew in 2017.
