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
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.
