Christine has always been highly creative and through her own Wedding Decorating company she gained a strong feel for design.
Christine paints semi-abstract art that is earthy and textural. She paints in both soft muted tones, and strong stark contrasting tones. Sometimes colourful, sometimes neutral colours.
Christine mainly paints NZ Landscape, particularly the beautiful areas of Central Otago and Mackenzie Country.
Her works are all about the layering and revealing of history, weathering and time-passing on both the landscape and of aged man-made objects that still survive.
Christine has photographed patinas on buildings, old tiles on floors, natural organic shapes, textured fabrics and so much more at home and overseas.
These sometimes give her a starting point for each painting. Other times Christine just starts layering paint and creating texture and going on an adventure to see what evolves.
Christine is a member of the Artists of Canterbury and has exhibited extensively in local Art Exhibitions.
