This year Christine is exhibiting at two venues:
- WOA in Bampton site 342 along with 11 other artists in West Oxfordshire
- Cool Contours site 465 with 14 other artists in North Oxfordshire
Christine's recent series of work that will be on display during Artweeks in both venues takes inspiration from her yoga practice. The brightly coloured paintings take their titles from yoga, for example Chakra, Drishti and Shanti.
The Shala (place where yoga is practised) paintings were inspired by yoga workshops in the UK, Greece and India, influenced by the variety of colours and atmospheres in both the natural world and the yoga spaces in which she has worked.
Back in North Oxfordshire, Christine's painting studio & yoga studio share the same space, so it was perhaps inevitable that some cross-fertilisation would take place.
Graduating in 1998 with BA (Hons) Fine Art & History of Art and an MA in Fine Art, 2000. Christine has exhibited widely in many group exhibitions with a solo show 'City Limits' at the 03 Gallery, Oxford in 2007 and 'Colourcode' at Bicester Village Gallery 2013.
In 2009 she won the Oxfordshire Artweeks Art Wine competition. The image was on the cover of the 2009 guide and featured on 600 bottles of red wine by top winemaker, David Morrison, for Oxford Wine Company.
As part of her yoga journey Christine trained as a yoga teacher during 2018.
