Christine's unique ability to capture life in all its beauty, humor, and reality allows her to create very detailed dioramas depicting nostalgic images as well as human nature in all aspects. Her diorama subjects range from collections of exquisite miniature glass "Still Lifes" to drive-in theatres with functioning marquee lights to patrons gazing at art in a museum to a romantic couple dancing near the Eiffel Tower. Airstream campers, a baseball field, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Lady Liberty all have made their appearance in her dioramas. A neighborhood diner, a city apartment building with multiple floors of tenants, and a lively beach scene beach are popular choices. Her wicked sense of humor created "Dangerous Swingset", "Little Sinners" and "The Bad Seed".
Situated in the heart of the Shawangunk Mountains, Christine's studio overlooks the beautiful Hudson Valley of New York. She starts her day early, first caring for the orphaned and injured wildlife she rehabilitates and then in her studio where she designs and creates her artwork.
As a self-representing artist, Christine's unique and varied artistic talents focus on the design and creation of miniature dioramas. The reality of these dioramas is drawn from her vast collection of vintage photos as well as her personal memories of times gone by. Christine creates not only realistic depictions with particular attention to detail, but she also captures the feeling of those times whether it be at the classic drive-in theater or honeymooning at Niagara Falls.
