LIFE MEMBER

Christine was inspired to paint by art teacher Julia Lynch (Sister Lawrence).

Mostly self-taught, Christine painted in oils for some years before becoming interested in watercolour for its exciting challenges and sometimes unexpected results. She also enjoys working in coloured pencil.

Christine worked in commercial art and draughting field, and careful drawing is a part of her preparation. She paints a wide range of subjects, mostly in realistic style.

Christine is a Life member of the Wellington Art Club and a Member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and Watercolour New Zealand.

Christine has exhibited and sold paintings in the Wellington area and now lives in Ohope.
