Christine is an award winning contemporary artist.
She is represented by galleries in Australia, Indonesia and Singapore.
Christine has been a finalist twice in The Black Swan Portrait Prize and her paintings hang in London, Geneva, Los Angles, Moscow and throughout Australia.
Christine uses many mediums to create her work and is best known in Western Australia for her iconic landscapes depicting people at play.
Creating beautiful things has been her life since graduating from Claremont Collage of Fine Art in 1973. Sometimes creating was briefly interrupted by travelling, running a national clothing company, teaching and raising a family but always Christine would return to painting.
She now lives for part of the year in Ubud Bali where she has a beautiful studio in the jungle.
Australian landscapes have always been a major inspiration for Christine and for this year’s Mundaring Hills Open Studio exhibition she will be creating a series of hills landscapes featuring rocky outcrops, twisted gum trees and zanthorreas. Christine will also exhibit her iconic beach paintings with strong summer colours, beach umbrellas, dogs and endless blue skies.
Christine’s paintings are fresh, colourful, impressionistic and in a style that is hers. She is so happy to again be a part of this amazing group of artists showing their studios and the process involved in creating their work.
For this years exhibition she is showing new paintings and ceramics that are inspired by her recent journey into mark making. She is also featuring paintings from her dog series, this theme is such a joy to paint.
As an artist Christine is always pushing her boundaries and looking for new and challenging directions.
