Christine's love for nature was nurtured in her childhood by her family. Her father was an amateur photographer who took Christine hiking and camping all over the world to share his interests. Christine learned to look at her natural surrounding with respect and wonder.

In the last couple of years, Christine's focus has been on reaching out to others in her community to gain knowledge and to offer support, to grow as an artist and to bring beauty to others through her own unique style. She hopes others will see the wonder of their surrounding through her creations.
