An Instagram model is being accused of ‘art fraud,’ so she posted videos of herself painting to prove she can

Cristina Szeifert, a clinical psychologist and ex-model with over 30,000 Instagram followers, says one of her greatest passions is painting. Some followers, however, have accused her of passing off other people’s artwork as her own. Szeifert appears to pose with the same unchanged palette over and over. Others have criticized the brushes and tools she poses with. After an influx of skeptical comments, Szeifert posted multiple videos of herself painting: “I just wanted to clarify that due to the negativity going around in the last days,” she wrote in the caption. “All my paintings are made by my self as this one.” Visit INSIDER’s homepage for more stories.

Szeifert is a clinical psychologist and ex-model, according to her website, with over 30,000 Instagram followers. But she often touts painting as her main talent, posting photos of completed pieces and encouraging followers to do what makes “your heart and soul feel perky.” View this post on Instagram Do activities you're passionate about – which make your heart and soul feel perky – including things like working out, cooking, painting, writing, yoga, hiking, walking, swimming, being in nature, being around art, or reading inspiring books.I wake up every morning and I read or I paint,I listen a good music and I drink my coffe like this.

The color stains are nearly identical in multiple different photos, which implies that it’s just a prop. Other Reddit users noticed that Szeifert’s nice clothes are always clean – even though she poses as if she’s in the middle of painting – and she frequently seems to “paint on top of a fancy rug without putting a cloth down.” “Also no paint on her brush,” one person added. “And her hands aren’t covered in paint.” View this post on Instagram Autumn in my eyes🍁🍂🎨 #mypassion❤️ #painting #paintings#paintingart #painting🎨 #painter #sunday#mysunday#myday#home#homesweethome #sundaymood #sundayhomeA post shared by Cristina Szeifert (@cristinaszeifert) on Oct 7, 2018 at 5:10am PDT The Reddit thread appeared to inspire Szeifert’s followers to scrutinize her feed and share their complaints. “People here really thinking she painted that… her palette is the exact same,” one comment reads. Others have raised concerns about the brushes and tools that Szeifert poses with. “You can’t even make that painting with a pallet knife, like the one you’re holding,” one person wrote underneath a photo from April.
