Christine was born in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. After leaving school she started her working life in retail advertising, studying for three years at East Sydney Art School. Christine went on to specialise in Fashion visualisation and photographic direction.
In her early twenties, a new adventure began working in Bangkok, Hong Kong, London and travelling throughout Europe. On her return she continued her career in graphic arts, where she met and married her husband, Peter. Bringing up a family of girls put her creative activities temporarily on hold.
When the time was right she explored different forms of creative endeavours through artistic mediums such as watercolour, pen and ink, and acrylics, watercolour being her love for capturing nature and botanics at their most beautiful. She trained with a number of well-known artists in Sydney's Northern Beaches.
