Welcome to my Studio

Hello, My fellow creatives, It is so lovely to be able to share a bit of my cherished Art Studio with you here. I find it to be my place of complete solitude where I can turn on my favorite classical music, sip my favorite tea, and lose myself in the painting process. As you explore this page you will not only get a feel of my painting processes, but also a bit of who I am. And, if you click around you might discover that I share some of my favorite, "MUST HAVE" art materials for my, and really any artist studio. Enjoy exploring, and check back often, as it is with my artwork, this page will be constantly evolving and growing as I too , even after all these years of painting, continue to always evolve and grow as an Artist. ~ XO, Christine
