Welcome, I'm Christine !
I am a self-taught Christchurch artist. I have always been creative having owned a wedding decorating business and having a strong interest in interior design
I paint semi-abstract landscapes that are earthy and textural.
They are inspired by our New Zealand landscape, particularly Central Otago, Mackenzie Country and Canterbury.
My works are descriptive of landforms shaped by both natural forces and man. Weathering, erosion and human activity lead to an ever-changing terrain.
There is often a touch of both flora and water in my paintings that allude to the idea of the land sustaining life. These also help to soften the painting and give it movement.
The paintings have layers of colour and texture through which I chisel, scrape, eliminate, add back and interact with the painting to reveal the essence of a landscape.
My artworks are held in corporate and private residences throughout New Zealand, Australia and the UK.
