February – May 2019 Bristol Museum & Art Gallery

Christine has been appointed Artist in Residence for the ‘Leonardo da Vinci: A life in Drawing’ exhibition at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. She is devising and delivering drawing workshops to the public, schools and special groups, inspired by Leonardo’s drawings. In her latest 2 day event Christine created a 5 metre tall portrait of Leonardo in 500 pieces (it is 500 years since Leonardo died).

Each piece was drawn by a member of the public, the youngest was 3 and the oldest 79 years old! The finished result is a transcription of a portrait of Leonardo attributed to Francesco Melzi made in 1515-18 but re-created using Christine’s favourite theme of ‘Realism to Abstraction’. The key piece is the eye, this was done by a lovely mum and her 2 sons together.
