Random Oddities... all with Christine's Unique Style

Artist’s Statement
My artwork features intricately detailed black ink drawings which are incorporated into innovative paper products, toys and oddities.

Things that inspire me are Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, decorative papers, plants that look like they came from another planet, forest creatures and moths. But this list grows constantly. I’ll go off on tangents and get obsessed with random topics - imps, cookie cutters, giant squid, insects, human anatomy…

Ideas for new work have a way of just popping into my head. It’s like I have a dusty old cabinet of curiosities in my brain and every once in a while some odd item falls out – “Oh look a Nasty Clown coffin shaped toy.” The root of these ideas can often be tied back to people and events in my life, as well as said random topics. Ask me about any particular book, drawing or card and there very often is a convoluted story behind it which has processed through the crazy alchemy lab of Creepy Christine’s mind.

My most recent creative experiments include continual ink illustrations (animal skulls, ever more insects, topiary and much more), transferring my drawings to fabric patches and shirts and creating jewellery.

Christine attended art college, has a diploma in merchandising and a degree in Business Administration. Her day job was in Finance, but over the last several years she has rediscovered the love of art she had, for various reasons, suppressed. She works feverishly whenever she can in her home studio on her quirky, darkly humorous paper products, framed art and shadowboxes. She feels she is only just getting started on her creative work and is now a full-time artist now that she has retired from the pesky day job.

Christine’s work has been shown and sold at The One of a Kind Show, Word on the Street, The Festival of Fear, Design at Riverside/Cambridge Galleries, The Small Press Book Fair, The Bazaar of the Bizarre, Toronto ETSY Street Team gallery and the AWOL gallery. Her book “SB and Associates” was purchased by Toronto Public Library Special Collections.

Freelance illustration work includes: digital scrapbooks, snowboards, magazines and private commissions.

Production Process
Work is all done by Christine by hand in her home studio and is also often taken on the road. She works pretty much constantly wherever she goes… always drawing, sorting gift tags and generally making something.
