After a career in healthcare, Christine retired early to pursue her childhood dream of a career in art. She has extensive training in the classical academic approach to oil painting. In August 2008, she joined the artists of Golden Belt and created the Millenaissance Studio at Golden Belt. Christine also restores fine oil paintings for clients and is dedicated to creating work that is both beautiful and archival. Her still life and landscape oil paintings explore the effects of light and distance on everyday objects. Her paintings invite the viewer to enter a realistic world which hints at the fragility of life, beauty and the relationship of mankind and the natural world.
