Christine's original paintings have been sought after and purchased by large corporations such as: ABC / DISNEY- LA, CA, SONY- LA, CA, SIMON AND SCHUSTER PUBLISHING, NYC , to name a few, and can be found in private & public collections around the world. Christine attended universities in California and holds a Masters of Arts Degree. Working as a full-time artist, Christine developed her unique layered, impasto and often organic style, preferring to work primarily without brushes, but instead with a palette knife. She prefers scraping the paint in layers onto the canvas as it produces such depth, textures and light-reflective qualities that are found in nature while maintaining the desired vividness of color. Christine feels that art can make one see beauty in the simplest things, in things that people so often over look in their daily lives. She, herself, is constantly inspired by the smallest intricacies found in the world, from the way the sunlight plays off of a flower petal, to the marbleized effect seen in a stone, to the variations of color and texture found in an old, weathered, peeling door. She creates each painting by hand, seeing each piece building up as a small journey with the final painting as the destination.
Christine currently works from her studio in Temecula, CA. She exhibits locally within southern CA. From her studio, which looks out over the rolling hills, valleys, and wine country, she is inspired from the beauty surrounding her to create unique, original paintings which can be found in private and corporate collections around the world. Christine is continually commissioned by designers, collectors, and businesses to create custom pieces for clients. Some of her SOLD and available original paintings are available for purchase here as prints, canvas prints, metal print, acrylic prints, iPhone cases and cards.
