Christine Sparks' Profile

About

I grew up in the damp greenness of Portland, Oregon. I spent a lot of time as a kid exploring the tide pools, dunes and forests of the Northern Oregon Coast. I was a biology major in college where I spent more time studying tide pools, dunes and forests (this time of the Southern Oregon Coast). I took a few biological illustration classes in college. They made me really pay attention to natural forms and how to accurately and realistically represent nature. I moved to Southern California after college where I surprisingly can still find a lot of nature to explore. When I’m not working or playing outside I spend a lot of time crafting a variety of different things including: screen printed clothing and housewares, bags, aprons, simple clothing, paper mobiles, felt things, embroidery, relief prints, drawing and watercolor.
