Cheltenham artist Christine Smith

 

Christine  has enjoyed painting and drawing from an early age and likes to tackle a variety of subjects, working mostly in watercolour, but also in pencil and acrylic.  For many years Christine concentrated on portraits, attending courses at Somerset College of Art, but after residing in Cyprus for several years turned more to landscapes and buildings. 

She now lives in Gloucestershire and exhibits around the county.

In 2001, Christine successfully took part in Channel 4's "Watercolour Challenge", winning her heat at Packwood House with her painting of the long gallery. She then took part in the regional final at Coventry Cathedral.  Both paintings went on display at the Mall Galleries, London in January 2002.  The Coventry painting was auctioned to raise funds for the Cathedral.

Christine has been commended in the Sennelier Watercolour competition (2005), and also the Winsor and Newton / SAA 'Opera Rose' painting competition (2007).  She was Highly Commended in the The Wildlife Art Society International (TWASI) Exhibition (2013)

Christine is the Treasurer of Cheltenham's 'Art in the Park' exhibition.
