With a lifelong passion for nature, animals, and the arts, Christine brings inspiration and creativity to life through her work. Combining form and function, each detailed piece reflects a unique gift from the earth as she creates each one-of-a-kind work of art.
While obtaining a master's degree in counseling psychology, Christine began incorporating horses and art therapy in her work with trauma victims and veterans on a 4,700-acre working cattle ranch in Central Florida. The bravery and resiliency of those survivors, coupled with the almost magical healing powers of working in nature with the Florida cracker horses, continue to inspire much of her sculpture and paintings.
The artist's passion for horses and nature is evident in her work across all mediums, especially clay. Each one-of-a-kind piece captures the movement and essence of her subjects, embracing an energy and will all its own. Her intricately textured designs and carvings reflect a unique combination of impressionism with primitive hand building techniques, creating a fully functioning work of art.
She writes, "Horses, in particular, are amazing creatures. They teach us so much about ourselves and show us a calm, gentle, yet powerful and majestic beauty that lives within us all. Animals live in the present moment, balanced and in harmony with their environments. In the quiet space between human and animal, there is a connectivity that can bring profound inner peace and healing. My hope is to bring people closer to finding that connection through my artwork."
