Artist Statement

Painting is my passion and my mediums of choice are watercolour and acrylic.  I paint primarily in a representational manner and I am drawn to the figure,wildife and landscape subjects. I love the abstract shapes found in our environment and in nature and that draws me in and inspires me. Mixing the two to help create what I see and feel.  I tend to paint places I have been to or things that I know, reliving a moment in time or recapturing the emotion felt. Each painting is a personal journey allowing me to put my own perspective on what I see making the ordinary or familiar take on a new life.   As an artist I hope to stir a reaction in those who see my work.


Christine is a Coquitlam, artist who has drawn and painted since childhood and is primarily self-taught. Her mediums of choice are watercolours and acrylics. She is now retired and painting and is showing on a regular basis in the lower mainland and has had the pleasure of showing her watercolour work internationally in Madrid and Italy.  She is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, an active member and board member of the Suite E Life Drawing Society and a member of the Port Moody Art Association.
