At work in her UK studio Christine constantly explores new ways of bringing together her passion for drawing; an exuberant use of paint, both oil and acrylic; media such as gold foil and sand and a powerful sense of design and composition to portray her favourite subject….dramatic birds of prey.
Her new work comprises a series of paintings and drawings depicting mainly falcons and eagles. These are large works on canvas up to 2 metres in size, they capture the sheer power, movement and glorious plumage of the birds. The paint is built up in layers, creating a thickly encrusted surface, which is plastered, gouged and drawn into with brush and palette knife, resulting in defiantly contemporary work. The effect is electrifying, the birds hyper-real, filled with energy and attitude.
Christine’s drawings and paintings are as awesome and compelling to the viewer as the birds are in nature. These works are for sale. Christine will also paint and draw to commission from your photographs. Contact Christine by telephone or email on the ‘Enquiries’ page.
