PAINTER PRINTMAKER TEACHER PUBLISHER
Christine Porter lives in Lismore, New South Wales, Australia, working from her studio there, as well as in more remote areas of New South Wales and Queensland.
She is a full time professional artist. Career highlights include a Bachelor of Visual Arts, the 2006 McGregor Fellowship for overseas travel, 150+ prizes, artwork in The National Gallery of Australia and more read her full cv here .
Her artwork tells visual stories about rural Australia, specializing in a portrayal of the iconic Australian Shearing Shed. As a printmaker Christine continues her rural subjects, as well as more personal themes. She uses other mediums too, such as artist made boxes, when the inspiration strikes.
Christine’s paintings have travelled across the countryside these last few months. Thanks to Fastway, BusQld and the committee of the Blackall Cultural Association, Christine’s work was able to be shown in Blackall at their art show, which was part of the #B150 celebrations, with excellent results. Thanks to Sue Denham for the photos that she kindly sent me on opening night.
Christine was earlier in the year visiting the famous shearing shed at “Deeargee” near Uralla. This is a short video of her time there.
