Christine Says: “I use representational imagery to express visceral emotion. My work evolves from emotion that wells up from within, and I usually meditate on a sense of gratitude before beginning. I find that this practice brings great joy to the process and results in paintings that celebrate life.
Working on canvas supports, I often separate my layers of texture, water based media, and various materials such as metal leaf, with layers of clear acrylic resin. Each painting is comprised of at least three and up to 12 layers. This layering technique draws the viewer within the artwork and can have the appearance of active life that has paused for consideration and appreciation.”
