Christine is an energetic illustrator and surface pattern designer living in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. She takes full advantage of the beauty around her and nourishes her creative spirit by hiking and getting out in nature. She creates artwork that would add sunshine to anyone's day.
To Christine, art is a process that is ever changing, growing and with no end. She loves learning and evolving by pushing, pulling and stretching her abilities. She received a BFA in Graphic Design/Illustration from Drake University and continues to challenge herself with classes .
Though she had a successful business for over 20 years as a muralist and furniture designer and painter, Christine longed for her drawing board. So once her children went off to college, she decided to refocus and get back to her true love, drawing. Since altering her path a few years ago, she has been designing collections that are suitable for applications in many markets. She prefers to render her detailed illustrations in color pencil and graphite, although she is quite versatile and can also paint with acrylic and watercolor. She often does some final touches in Photoshop.
She hopes you feel the joy she has is creating, as there is nothing else she would rather be doing.
