Christine is a well-known seascape artist residing in New Bern, North Carolina. Her coastal landscapes and depictions of local wildlife reflect her love for her adopted coastal home of eastern North Carolina.
Originally from Ohio, Christine retired from a career in Nursing in 2017 and relocated to New Bern with her husband Rick in 2018. Together they spend time exploring the NC coastline, where she finds inspiration for her art at the “water’s edge”.
“I’ve always been happiest at the water’s edge. I love painting there as I find my peace and joy in the connection with the water and shore. I have a quote that says, ‘where the sea meets soul’, and that sums up the heart of my art too”.
In New Bern, Christine’s work can be seen at both the Community Artist Gallery and Studios and the Bank of the Arts. Her art is also available at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum and Heritage Center in Morehead City and Harker’s Island, North Carolina.
Recently juried into the 2020 North Carolina Watercolor Society Show, Christine also has exhibited art in the Twin Rivers Art Association Annual Show, the Studio Tour and the Bank of the Arts Critter Show. She is a member of both North Carolina and Coastal Carolina Plein Air groups. She has studied under watercolorists Barney Cole and Tony Couch, among others. In addition to watercolor, she enjoys exploring creativity in oils and mixed media.
She also is available for commissioned work.
