ABOUT THE ARTIST.
A lifetime resident of the Hudson Valley Christine holds a Bachelor’s degree in design. She worked for many years in an advertising agency executing corporate graphic design and began to explore photography in the Hudson Valley as well as while traveling abroad.
After spending many years in the two-dimensional world of graphic design and photography Christine became interested in three-dimensional art. According to Christine, “It’s a whole new world to explore. While being interested in many three dimensional mediums I keep being drawn back to glass. Initially it was stained glass, I then dabbled in blown glass, and now I am fully steeped in fused glass. Glass has endless possibilities.”
Another attraction Christine has expounded on is that “There are scientific limitations that make working with glass a challenge. The aspect of this challenge makes this even more rewarding… as well as sometimes more frustrating.”
