Christine’s pursuit as a realist painter began at an early age and carried through her 29 year career as a Fine Art teacher of primary, secondary and tertiary students in South Australia. She always ensured she made time for her own artwork.
A 12 year break from teaching provided the opportunity to work with other artists on painting trips, to devote herself to her artwork and to complete many commissioned paintings for both corporate and private collections.
In 2016 Christine moved to Wanarra station in the Central West of Western Australia. The amazingly varied landscape, plant forms and wildlife provide an endless source of inspiration. Vast spaces, rugged granite outcrops, huge salt lakes, acacia scrub, ancient york gums, massive salmon gums and carpets of wildflowers in spring.
Overarching it all is the amazing, uninterrupted view of the sky, the weather, the atmospheric effects. An artists dream.
