Hi, I'm Christine!

As a child in the California foothills, my bedroom was always strewn with colorful fabrics, yarns, and papers to fuel my creativity.  I made sand candles, knitted scarves, and sewed blouses. Later in high school I enjoyed throwing pottery, drawing, and painting.

In college I studied biology and received advanced degrees in both biology and scientific illustration.

I have worked as a freelance artist and graphic designer for over 20 years for a wide variety of clients.

I love sharing my passion for the natural world by drawing and painting the wildlife I find in my travels.
