About the Artist


BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Christine was born in England and had lived in or visited thirteen countries by the time her family moved to Canada when she was nine. This vagabond childhood gave Christine a strong interest in travel and world cultures, something that strongly informs her work today.

Pretty much born with a pencil in her hand, Christine has always pursued the arts in one way or another: as a practicing artist; as a designer, actor, and director in amateur theatre; and in her long career as an art teacher.

Currently residing in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Christine continues to teach and create mixed-media collages. She is a member of the Canadian Federation of Artists.
