Featured Tranquilista: Christine Mason Miller is a Santa Monica based writer and artist who has been creating, writing and exploring ever since she was a little girl. Her mission to inspire has provided the foundation for all of her creative work; the desire to encourage others to pursue their passions and create a meaningful life is the common thread throughout an expansive body of work that includes mixed media collage, commercial illustration, photography, writing, teaching and speaking.
Christine’s art and writing gives viewers a peek into a variety of details from her life, details that grab her attention on journeys around the world as well as within her own self. Using materials as varied as acrylic paints, ink, coffee, mannequins, vintage photographs and other ephemera, Christine’s creations are full of color, texture and hidden stories. Her latest book ~ Desire to Inspire:  Using Creative Passion to Transform the World ~ is now available on and at bookstores everywhere.
