Christine is a painter from the Eastern Shore, Maryland. She was born in Washington DC and lived in Maryland much of her childhood. As the youngest of 7 her early formative years were influenced by the Artists and Scientists in her family. She fell in love with ice skating and was immersed. The elegance and beauty was an inspiration. The movement to music and images etched in the ice from her blades deeply impact the paintings she creates today.

As an RN, Christine spent many years in the trauma operating room at INOVA Fairfax hospital,Va. She was a plastics, reconstructive, and craniofacial specialist there while attending art school.
