Mixed Media – Painting/Photography/Sculpture
Christine’s art interests are many and varied. She started her visual art career in photography, making primarily documentary/photojournalism and Nature images (later writing and photographing for newspapers, and teaching). “I like to make photographs of Nature – human and otherwise,” she says.
Christine then spent about 10 years diving into (and later teaching) clay sculpture. “I had been searching for a medium that was more tangible, tactile – and clay met that need completely.”
These days Christine may do or teach either photography or sculpture: “I make photographs often and I occasionally sculpt. Although,” she adds, “my current obsession is painting.” And when she paints, as expected, Christine has a couple of different styles. “I may make expressionistic abstracts at times, and more impressionistic, plein air landscapes at other times. Some say I have a short attention span, which is probably true, but I simply like to make art when and how the mood strikes me. I follow my bliss.”
