Christine DeFazio is an art educator and artist working in the Bronx focusing on Urban Arts. She has degrees in Art History and was the Director of Michael Hall Fine Arts, where she wrote several catalogs on 19th Century and Renaissance Sculpture. She is a licensed appraiser and has worked with Sotheby’s.

Her Pop Art artwork focuses on capturing the psyche of her sitters, often caught in a dilemma expressed through allegory or myth with a touch of Surrealism. She aims to convey stories of love, longing and despair, through herĀ  imagery of the female form. She just recently participated in a Conceptual Art performance based group exhibition at the School of Visual Arts, creating a series based on the theme of Black Hearts and Rotten Apples.
