Christine has been an artist since age five. She attended St. Mary's Academy, Bay View in East Providence, RI where she began her serious art and calligraphy training. Accepted to the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth's School of Visual & Performing Arts, she graduated Magna Cum Laude majoring in Illustration/Visual Design with a minor in Calligraphy. Upon graduation she was hired as a graphic designer for Verizon Yellow Pages and stayed for 13 years in various management positions. Christine voluntarily left Verizon in 2003 to pursue mural painting and faux finishing full time.

In March of 2006 Christine was juried into the National Society of Mural Painters and in 2008, the International Guild of Realism and the Providence Art Club. In high demand for her flexibility of design styles that complement the owner's taste and surroundings, she works on both long and short term projects. She has studied Faux Finishing at RISD, and her 30 years of antiques appreciation uniquely qualify her to create, embellish or replicate historically accurate designs.

Christine and her husband Joseph have their home and studio in Harmony, Rhode Island with their children and terrier mix, "Theibaud."

In 1992, both Christine and Joseph traveled to Romania with the non-profit organization Save the Lost Souls International to paint murals in an orphanage outside Onesti. Although the conditions were quite difficult in the recently war torn Romania, Chris & Joe brought smiles to the faces of approximately 200 children, many with AIDS, by painting bright images of silly seascapes and hot air balloons.
