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.
Christine is a full time professional artist. Career highlights include a Bachelor of Visual Arts from Southern Cross University, 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, specialising 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.
After accidentally meeting Radio National presenter Ed Ayers in a caravan park in Armidale, he invited her to be on his program, “The Arts Show”. A few months later they went to a shearing shed near Stanthorpe and recorded some stories. The resulting program was broadcast February 13th, 2019. Listen here.
