Christina Zimpel was born in 1961 in Perth, Western Australia. She currently resides in New York and works from her studio at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. She received her BA in graphic design at Curtin University, Western Australia. Her career began as an art director for fashion magazines such as Vogue. She eventually got out on her own as a full-time artist. 
She now translates her sense of humor and observations of her daily life into fruity, expressive paintings of stylish women. However, her childhood is used as a vivid focal point for reference of her art.
Zimpel has been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions all over the world, including Australia, Europe and the United States - Los Angeles, Oakland, and New York. Her most recent work is part of Odd & Imaginary, a group exhibition presented by Simard Bilodeau Contemporary in Los Angeles.
