"If there were a hundred hours in a day, I would still want to draw for a hundred and one." - Christine Anderson
Christine is an energetic illustrator and surface pattern designer living in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. She takes full advantage of the beauty around her and nourishes her creative spirit by hiking and getting out in nature. She creates artwork that would add sunshine to anyone's day.
To Christine, art is a process that is ever changing, growing and with no end. She loves learning and evolving by pushing, pulling and stretching her abilities. She received a BFA in Graphic Design/Illustration from Drake University and continues to challenge herself with classes .
Though she had a successful business for over 20 years as a muralist and furniture designer and painter, Christine longed for her drawing board. So once her children went off to college, she decided to refocus and get back to her true love, drawing. Since altering her path a few years ago, she has been creating design collections that are suitable for applications in many markets. She prefers to render her detailed illustrations in color pencil and graphite, although she is quite versatile and can also paint with acrylic and watercolor. She often does some final touches in Photoshop. Presently, she is working on some new pieces that are a combination of the tight renderings she so loves to do with some looser, more gestural painting and mark making. Come back soon to see!! She is loving the juxtaposition.
Her work is available for purchase or licensing. She also welcomes commissions and would love to discuss any projects you have in mind.
I hope you have enjoyed viewing her work. Please do not reproduce any art on this site in any form without first asking permission. Thank you so much!
