Christine’s creativity started to show as a young child growing up in Scottsdale, her favorite pastime was her “Paint-by-Numbers” art sets. She later started designing her doll’s clothes and then entered these designs in a contest on the Wallace and Ladmo Television Show. In high school she began to design women’s clothing and entering contests and winning awards for her work. She also designed a wedding dress for an illustrations class, which resulted in having the design shared on a local Arizona TV show.

In 1990 Christine moved to the Sonoma Wine Country in California with her husband. A friend took her to the Georgia O’Keefe art showing in San Francisco which is where her love for art started. Christine has also worked as a professional floral designer furthering her love for flowers and things botanical.

Christine took a bold step and entered the Sonoma County Art Exhibit; a juried art show, winning “First Place” for her Sunflowers watercolor painting. Christine and her husband recently spent 6 months in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; where their focus was to work with the local churches and pastors to equip them to become self-sustaining and provide hot meals, and training to the Mexican children of the Colonials. While in Mexico Christine was able to explore the Botanical Gardens and photograph the native flowers of the state of Jalisco. Christine had the privilege of studying under the supervision of Meg Munro, AWA; an award winning watercolor artist while in Puerto Vallarta. Her recent works are influenced by her time spent in this tropical paradise.

She has now returned to Arizona and lives in Fountain Hills where she continues to paint flowers, cacti and things of the Southwest.
