Christine comes from a background of dress and interior design, art, décor and homewares, and now jewellery. Colour has been a major part of her creative life and she brings colour into all her works.
All of Christine’s individual unique works are created in her studio in Lennox Head where she takes inspiration from the ever changing colours of her surrounds.
Christine’s latest medium is RESIN – creating a wonderful collection of jewellery and homewares using vibrant colours and as much locally sourced products as she can find. One of her ranges of jewellery has local timber shavings incorporated within the RESIN, which gives the jewellery natural light and dark shades – rosewood and camphor are just two of the recent timers Christine has used.
RESIN is a hardwearing yet light accessory which will brighten your day.
I picked up a paintbrush around 13 years ago, for the first time since early high school. Since then I have fallen in love with art.
My first love is watercolour, but I sometimes pain in oil and acrylic. I also enjoy life drawing and developing mono prints from my drawings.
As I work almost full time, my time is limited and precious, so I prefer quick studies which I hope capture the mood and feeling of the subject.
For me painting is pure pleasure and I hope that is conveyed in my work.
I have no formal qualification but enjoy doing classes and workshops when I find the time.
I have met many wonderful people and kindred spirits through my art journey and I am grateful for the opportunity. Over the years I have sold more than 200 works so I guess somebody is enjoying them, which is very rewarding.
