Christine lives in Settle. She moved here twenty years ago with her husband and baby daughter and has no plans to leave.

Her  painting is inspired by the beautiful countryside around her – the limestone crags, green fields, dry stone walls, barns and flowers of the Dales. The Three Peaks of Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside, from different viewpoints, also feature prominently in her work.

Christine’s pictures never have people in them. She prefers her work to show familiar scenes as places of calm and solitude just at the quiet time before people arrive and the day’s activities begin. She does, however, like to include buildings in some of her work. These pictures aim to show the last small influence of people on the landscape before the countryside opens out and the hills rise up.
