Christine was born in Frankton Junction, New Zealand. She studied graphics at The School of Design, Wellington Polytechnic majoring in Illustration for publication. She gained a Post Graduate Diploma in Fine Art from the University of Auckland.
Her first job was at Waikato Hospital as a Medical Artist, and she painted artificial eyes! Next, she balanced free-lancing with teaching graphics at Waikato Polytechnic then pictorial design at Auckland University of Technology.
"As a small child, for Christmas I was given a tin of Lakeland pencils by my Grandmother and my creative career was launched! Drawing daily is now the cornerstone of my practice."
