About the Painter

about me

Christine has painted for several decades, but the greater volume of her activity has been since 2005. She joined beginners' evening classes in the 1970's, starting with oils and tackling mainly local landscape features. In the 1980's, while in search of a mental break from oils, she was encouraged to try soft pastels since these are another opaque medium and also very direct in technique. 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 occasionally in a more experimental manner, preferring oils or pastels for her representational pieces.
She likes the effects of light and weather and is fond of coastal and moorland areas where clouds and sky can be easily viewed. Water is another favourite theme. Her style of landscape painting is not normally highly vibrant or multi-coloured, but more restrained, whether in oils or pastels. Most works are a modest size, making them suitable for almost any location.
Christine belongs to very few groups, preferring to do the bulk of her creativity alone. She has supported her local-area exhibitions for over thirty five years. She tends to paint what she likes, rather than what is popular. Paintings can be found online at Original-Art-Under100.com; The ArtistStudio.co.uk and SmallArtStuff.co.uk
Christine lives in England, UK.
