Cristina Martinez is from the South Side of San Antonio, Texas. Born of immigrant parents, Spanish was her first language, Spanglish is her current. She lives with her dog, Yoshimoto (named after artist, Yoshitomo Nara) in the very same house she grew up in. Summers spent in Mexico with her Tias, weekend carne asadas and loterias, and memories of listening to Juan Gabriel at max volume while cleaning the house are the roots of her inspiration. Today you can find Cristina in and around San Antonio and other cities across the US setting up her wares at events, organizing local handmade shows, and living her life like it's golden. She's not so good at About Me's, nor is she all that great at speaking in third person. She hopes you are well.
