Couldn't be happier with my purchase. As soon as I discovered Christine's work I knew I wanted to buy something -- I love what I chose.

Michele was so touched to receive this upon arrival home. It will be a loving reminder of her sister through your artistry. Thank you for all you did for us, Christine.

About

~ Nothing You Can See That Isn't Shown ~ ~ Visual Art Work of Christine Peloquin ~

I am a 2-D mixed media artist currently showing my work at Arts on Douglas Gallery in New Smyrna Beach, Bennett Galleries in Knoxville, TN, Studio E Gallery in Palm Beach Gardens, Orlando Museum of Art Gift Shop and Florida Museum of Women Artists in Deland. I have also shown in numerous galleries around the country including Longstreth-Goldberg Gallery in Naples, Hanson Gallery, Knoxville, TN, Loretta Goodwin Gallery, Birmingham, AL, Blue Gallery, Kansas City, MO, and Kristal Gallery, Sugarbush, VT to name a few.

The majority of my artwork is drawing and painting on fabric and paper collage. The subjects range from faces and figures of women and children to landscapes, nature scenes and abstracts.

All the pieces begin with fabric and paper collage arranged, sewn and adhered to wood panels. The collages consist of any of the following; antique cloths, contemporary fabrics, antique dictionary pages, old children’s school books, atlases, architectural plans, wallpaper, tablecloths, napkins, lace, buttons, flowers, leaves and any variety of papers and 2D found objects. Over the collages, the drawings are done in charcoal and the work is painted with acrylics and mediums.

“The joy in this process of collaging, drawing and painting is the instinctual choices of rendering and harmonizing what I will cover up and what I will leave to be revealed.”

“My intention is to weave an autobiographical tapestry invoking and addressing universal issues such as philosophy, spirituality, sexuality, motherhood and self-awareness. Most of the titles come from appropriate words found in the collage. My blog is called 'Nothing You Can See That Isn't Shown' (borrowing from the Beatles) because I believe that art and life is always about becoming more conscious, more aware, and more of yourself. For me, this includes life as an artist, a woman and a mother.”

“I have been proud to call myself an artist since the age of three and have been selling my work for well over 20 years. I am so grateful for all the people who have collected my work through the years. I am continually amazed and thrilled when I think about my work hanging in so many homes. They are testaments to the power of art that the creative life that brings me so much joy continues to ripple through the world making people feel happy.”

I live and work in Mount Dora with my two sons.
