About the Artist:
I can always remember having a drawing tool in my hand, my need to see through drawing was important to me. My fascination for color and how it could change the mood and feeling of a moment in time came with my love for painting.
Moving to Boston after college in the early 80’s, I continued painting and drawing at Mass College of Art and Design and at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Today I am an art educator and a painter who balances my time between teaching and growing as an artist. “My Work is derived from observing my natural surroundings, interpretation is contemporary realism with an expressive style. Whether it is the glorious hues of an evening sky or the interesting play of water reflections, I react and respond with pastel as my voice”.
Christine has earned the level of Eminent Membership from the International Association of Pastel Societies in November 2018 and received this honor during the IAPS convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico, June, 2019. Her paintings have been shown in museums and galleries throughout the U.S. in national and international juried exhibitions and are in private collections across the country.
