Figurative work is central to her art. Christine’s visual pieces are a reflection of what is germane in her life and therefore revolve around the evolution of spirituality, the practice of yoga - and especially women and their diverse manifestations of beauty. Over the years Christine added print-making to her work - creating and working with lino blocks, etchings, and silk screening allowed her to explore graphic images. I was drawn to print making because of it's joyful graphic nature. Christine says, "Printing feels like shorthand. I love how it communicates clearly at our most primitive level."
Exploring the energy that occurs when images and words connect - art that moves - is one of Christine's favourite ways to create. Inspirational words from great poets and seers (one of her favourites is 11th century Sufi mystic Jalal-ud-Rumi) provides the creative fuel for many of Christine's paintings.
No-one ever sees that last moment
The eroded rock becomes sand
But if they did they would hear
the Sea singing.
Over the last 10 years - Christine began to work on large scale art projects in the elementary school system. She feels blessed to have worked extensively with children and is thankful for these opportunities to help students enhance playgrounds and drab public school hallways with the energy and joy of their own creativity.
