Christine has painted for many years, using various media. Her early pictures were mainly landscapes of her home environment in south-west England, UK.
During a rare period of illness in the 1990s, she was unable to travel much, and began to look at subjects in the garden. Her first flower pictures were in watercolour and occasionally acrylic.
In the early 2000's she began experimenting with larger canvases and, for a while, produced semi-abstracts derived from flower close-up views, placing a number of these on Ebay at a time when the art community there was thriving. This period eventually changed and Christine came back to working on a smaller scale, this time with oils and soft pastels; still remaining with flower themes.

The smaller format has become a regular choice and Christine's pictures range from a few inches in size (such as ACEO cards) up to around 16x12 inches. She still enjoys oils and often switches between these and pastels to gain fresh momentum. During the last couple of years, she has produced a number of cloud studies in both oil and pastel, as well as floral work. Most of her pictures are representational in style; seeking to capture flower forms, character and gestures; and a sense of light in cloudscapes.
She has paintings at DailyPaintWorks.com and the British site Original-Art-Under100.com; and is a member of the British group Society for All Artists (SAA).
