She attended art classes at the University of Dayton and Sinclair Community College. Christine has also studied with many well-known painters and sculptors, concentrating her studies in sculpture with Lincoln Fox, Walt Horton, and Veryl Goodnight among others.

Artist’s Statement
Art is an intimate way of communicating a message, feeling or emotion to others. My goal is to spark a fond memory, inspire an idea or enlighten my viewers of the varied subjects I have chosen to portray. Of ultimate interest to me is that special bond that develops between people, animals, and each other.
