Original artwork in a variety of media; soft pastel, oils, acrylic, on canvas, board and paper; featuring floral and land- or seascape subjects.

Christine works with several media, moving from one to another according to the content and theme of her chosen subjects. She started with oils in the 1970's and later took up with soft pastels when searching for a second medium to use. These tend to still remain her favourites after many years of trying out most types of paint, pencils and inks on the market. Encouraged by the fast-drying properties of acrylic, Christine also added this medium to her "stable" in 2004. She paints mainly middle to smaller-sized works; average size being around 16 to 20 inches (40 to 50cm).

Smaller sizes are a strong point for this artist; these pictures are usually traditional in style and subject, and the really small-scale ones are most likely to be oil or acrylic on board. Christine keeps options open and switches media now and then for a break. Subjects range around florals and land or seascape themes, all based on direct interaction, drawings, photos, places visited, first impressions, recollected thoughts. Christine does not settle for one medium or one subject-style.
