“I acknowledge the Yugambeh/Kombumerri people of the Bundjalung nation, the Traditional Owners of the Land on which I live.”


My name is Christine and I live on the east coast of Australia.  After completing a Diploma in Visual Arts and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, I decided to share some of the things I learned.

To understand contemporary art. it is important we appreciate the old masters. To understand their influences, motivation and place in the world during their lifetimes is to understand artwork in the post-modern world we live in.  Work of great masters is the foundation of everything artists do today.  To this end, I have included exercises on how to copy great paintings complete with a short piece on the lives of the artists.

I intend to give meaning to famous artworks in order to encourage people to take time out from their busy lives, relax, chill out and enjoy creative experiences.

This is all tied in with a Diploma in Counselling which I completed in 2005 and my creation of the upcoming  “The Disobedient Artist” e book.   This book of quotes and drawings is intended to be a resource to motivate and encourage us to move forward in the spirit of acceptance,  love for ourselves, others and our precious planet.
