About Christine

Christine's career in the arts is the continuation of a family legacy. Her oil landscapes honor the memory of her grandfather, renowned turn of the century painter, Henry W. Tomlinson who traveled the western United States on horseback to capture its beauty in the tradition of plein-air. In bringing her inner vision to life, Christine is in the on-going process of exploring multiple means of representation including painting and sculpture. Christine has found her voice through art in a style distinctly her own.

 

Christine's work in the arts has received many awards, and has been juried into numerous shows. In 2004, her sculpture, Kindred Spirits, was one of ten juried into Washington's 7th Annual Peace Arch Park International Sculpture Exhibition. In 2006, her oil landscape, Sunday Morning Drive, was awarded 1st place in Sedona's 26th Annual SAC Show. In 2008, she was awarded 2nd place at the prestigious Scottsdale Artists School's, Best & Brightest Show, for her sculpture depicting two motherless fawns entitled The Orphans, Annie & Lilly. In recognition of that honor, Southwest Art Magazine featured Christine in its March 2010 issue. In 2013 she published her 1st book in a series, Rock On, Rocks & Things from My Beach. In 2014 Rock On was a finalist in Foreword Reviews' Book of The Year Award, in the nature category.

 

Christine's work is held in many private collections as well being shown currently in fine galleries in Arizona and Michigan.
