Christine has been an artist since age five. She attended St. Mary's Academy,
Bay View in East Providence, RI where she began her serious art and calligraphy training. Accepted to the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth's School of
Visual & Performing Arts, she graduated Magna Cum Laude majoring in Illustration/Visual Design with a minor in Calligraphy. Upon graduation she was hired as a
graphic designer for Verizon Yellow Pages and stayed for 13 years in various management positions. Christine voluntarily left Verizon in 2003 to pursue mural
painting and faux finishing full time.
In March of 2006 Christine was juried into the National Society of Mural Painters and in 2008, the International Guild of Realism and the Providence Art Club. In high demand for her flexibility of design styles that complement the owner's taste and
surroundings, she works on both long and short term projects. She has studied Faux Finishing at RISD, and her 30 years of antiques appreciation uniquely qualify
her to create, embellish or replicate historically accurate designs.
