ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Christine

My watercolors and mixed media art celebrate all aspects of life – the various cultures and countries to which I have traveled for business and pleasure, the local sites, scenes and people I have encountered along the way, and the stunning landscapes, cityscapes and seascapes that Christine paintingmake up this incredible planet. My watercolors are realistic and, while not photographic, they are a close representation of the beauty I see everywhere. I taught watercolor classes at the Mt. View/Los Altos Senior Center for three years and at Hillview Community Center in Los Altos and increased my class sizes from 12 to 70 students.

In 2005, I fell in love with roosters when I attended the Santa Cruz County Fair for the first time and saw the Poultry Exhibit. I had no idea how many shapes, sizes and colors these birds represented. I especially Christine demonstratingenjoy naming these works – “What a Cocky Attitude”, “This Chick’s a Knockout” and “Here’s Looking at You, Chick” are a few of the tongue-in-cheek titles.
