“Since graduating from Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen, in the early 1960s Christine has exhibited widely at the public institutions, winning many major awards. The Teacher’s Whiskey Travel Scholarship Prize in 1995 allowed her the luxury of foreign travel for the sole purpose of artistic inspiration. A subsequent series of journeys to Morocco, Tunisia and Italy have left a lasting impression on her painting style. She has been elected a member of both the Royal Glasgow Institute and the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour. Her paintings hang in many corporate collections, notably a major group at the Royal Bank of Scotland, London and a commission for P & O’s latest cruise ship the Arcadia. In our current show Christine draws on her recent trips to Italy, placing her familiar still life and dove compositions before a dramatic window-framed vista of Tuscan or Umbrian landscape.”
