Exhibition: Apr 2 - 30, 2024
Location: Islip Arts Council Gallery
Opening Reception: TBA 

Christine is an abstract artist and art educator from Greenlawn, New York, and advocates the importance of process over product in both her teaching and artistic practice.

In her work, Christine engages in playful exploration across various media, establishing vibrant foundations of color and texture on canvas. Breaking the stark white of a new canvas with intentions, meditations, or spontaneous lines, she builds upon these initial marks with layers of acrylic washes, inks, and texture mediums. Incorporating transfers of original photographs, stencils, or bits of collage, her compositions draw inspiration from internal reflections, recent travel experiences, elements of nature, and favorite music, as well as messages collected from teabag fortunes.

Christine invites viewers to embark on a journey alongside her, finding new discoveries and wonders within each piece.



Founded in 1974, the Islip Arts Council is dedicated to leadership, advocacy, and excellence in the arts. Our goal is to present, produce, and promote culturally responsive, high quality programs in varied artistic disciplines for our diverse Long Island community.
