An Associate member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art, Christine is drawn to strong linear forms and in particular the built world. Fully committed to drawing - the foundation to all her work, Christine says "This is painting with a difference - as much fun as playschool, but don't try this if you don't want to get your hands dirty!"
After successfully showcasing mixed media painting at Surrey Art in Action, she will be demonstrating at the Menier Gallery in London as part of the Big Draw event in October, bringing live drawing and painting to a wider audience.
Christine demonstrates mixed media painting and leads workshops from the Skylight Studio in Reigate. Her paintings are held in private collections around the world.
