Christine Newsome is a mixed-media collage artist who lives in Chilliwack, British Columbia. She is a retired art teacher with a Master’s Degree in Art and Art Education.
Christine was born in England and had lived in, or visited, thirteen countries by the time she was nine years old. This vagabond childhood gave her an avid interest in travel, history and world cultures…things that strongly influence her work today.
Christine enjoys mixed-media collage because it allows her to fly by the seat of her pants. She uses an intuitive approach and often begins a piece with no fixed idea in mind.The piece evolves through manipulation of space, colour, texture and image.
“Art is not a contrived execution, it’s a series of intuitive, layered gambles”.
“The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.”
