Becoming a full time Artist
In the catalogue essay for her 2001 retrospective exhibition ten years: one thousand paintings, Christine describes looking back trying to find that definitive moment when she became an artist. She writes how it was way before the decision in 1990 to take leave from teaching and go full time. And before her first shearing shed commission in 1984, and before doing art at TAFE in Armidale while she was studying for her first degree, and before her first exhibition in Kempsey, and before high school art and before … and before. So in answer to the question “How did you become an artist Christine?” she replies that she’s always been an artist, that the passion for creating has underlined decisions all her life: both major career moves and those in the everyday.
