Christine's work has a pure and organic quality. Her compositions predominantly feature objects from nature in natural colours such as coffee, caramel, cream, black and grey in a style that is approachable, relatable and as comforting as a warm cup of tea. Christine has the innate ability to look closely at things that surround us everyday, (which we are often too distracted and busy to notice) and force her viewers to slow down and really look at the everyday, simple treasures of the natural world.

Looks very interesting and I love the spacial concept of between high and low tide. I spend alot of time there at the moment, learning the movement of the tide and the changes to a particular beach when the seasons change and the weather, the waves and the tide change, so the concept is one that I appreciate the context of. Must get to see more art.
