Christine graduated from Grays’ in 1984 as a painter/printmaker. She works from her studio, at her home in Stirling. The painting which is featured opposite is the view of Stirling castle as seen from her house.
The carse in Stirling provides a beautifully lit panorama, created by open sky underlined with old woodlands and the multiple twists of the river forth. It’s not hard to understand why an artist would choose such a place to make their home.
She retired early from teaching in 2017, so that she could spend more time making art. Her studio has regularly been open to the public during Forth Valley Art Beat, which takes place annually in June.
Christine has been an artist member of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists for the past six years. The groups’ biennial exhibitions are a great opportunity to see how other artists are developing their practice, and to inspire personal progress.
The natural environment has been her main inspiration, but she also draws inspiration from the human face and figure.
Work from past and future exhibitions can be viewed in Gallery.
