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.
"I am lucky enough to divide my time between living and painting in Australia, inspired by those iconic colours of blue skies, red dusty soil and hot summer days at the beach and my studio in Ubud where the soft colours of ripening rice, magical birds and butterflies and flowers are my view.
I use many techniques and materials in my paintings including oil and acrylic paint, rust paint and charcoal, gold leaf and collage.
Unless I am away from my studio I paint every day.
Art is my life."
