She is currently member of different art societies such as Guildford Art Society, Woking Art Society and The Society of Women Artists (Associate).
Christine has had a number of awards for her paintings and has been interviewed by the media, on a numerous occasions, for her achievements.
Christine values the usage of colours and forms to express herself and give less weight to detail.
We have all experienced moments of life with strong feelings. Christine tries to capture these special moments of life, using impressionism, so that the viewer can build up the rest of the picture in his/her mind. In a way which can be related to the past experience and memory of the viewer. It is intended that the viewer being encouraged to contribute to a version of painting which is uniquely the viewer’s own experience and therefore will be engaged with it time and time again each time from a slightly different aspect.
