About the Artist

Christine has painted for several decades, but the greater volume of her activity has been since 2005. She joined evening classes in the 1970's, starting with oils and tackling mainly local landscape features. While in search of a mental break from oils, she was encouraged to try pastels, since these are another opaque medium. Subject-matter has varied widely, with florals occupying a long stretch of time through the 90's and 2000's. Christine added acrylics as a "number three" medium; she uses these in a more experimental manner, preferring oils or pastels for her representational pieces. She belongs to very few groups, preferring to do the bulk of her creativity alone. Paintings can be found online at Original-Art-Under100.com; The ArtistStudio.co.uk and SmallArtStuff.co.uk Christine lives in England, UK.
