Bio

  • Christine has been an artist for 60 years and creates with graphite, charcoal, inks, watercolours, pastels, mixed media and acrylics. She also sculpts with clay and found objects, she creates in ephemeral art and more. She paints in the abstract expressionist, realist and impressionist styles.

    Her mother, who was an artist, was her first art teacher. Christine recently obtained her General Arts Certificate from the Ottawa School of Art. 

    Her artistic passion intensified after the retina in both her eyes tore in 1999.  Dr. Bill Britton saved her sight and since that miracle, she says she looks at everything around her “as if I had a third eye”.

    She believes that as an artist, it is necessary for her to share messages about her social concerns; such as the social problems of women, and the de-forestation of the planet.

    "My landscapes are emotional, crying out for the life of trees opposing the slash and burn out where I live and the deforestation of the planet. I am also trying to warn women that their status of equality and independence is still far from certain as the treatment of our earth is parallel to the treatment of women  and we are both in peril."
