To meet Christine is like landing on your back in a summer meadow, among the poppies and olive trees, in the balmy winds which, like her soul, wrap around you and take you home to yourself. With her art, and the art of letting you express yours, she takes you on a journey into yourself. A journey which is both internal and external.
“Bless you Christine for opening your home and heart to me and creating a gentle, peaceful space to blossom, hear my inner voice and converse with the creative spirit within. I thank you for offering the spaciousness of your heart and allowing me to breath, create, be silent, be noisy, eat, sleep, dream, visit, walk, talk, and above all to paint to my heart’s content. It was a joyous opportunity for me to dig deep and break through my inhibiting veil of fear. A space where I could allow ideas and inner stories to erupt to the surface and be translated onto the surfaces of wood, paper and canvas. These random lines held within the potential for paintings and swirls of colour, telling stories. My intuitive childlike strokes released cathartic emotions and pure joy. Thank you.”
Christine offers visitors, guests and groups a world of color and form, through Vedic Art workshops and Way of Nature group events, which support a deepening connection to one’s inner and outer nature. This is done through immersive contact with nature’s presence and as a catalytic source of energy. She is barefoot. She is grounded. She welcomes you to take part of yourself through her eyes, hands and tools.
She also hosts solo workshops on a B&B basis, from her home in Montegiovi, Monte Amiata, Tuscany.
Born in Österlen in Sweden, Christine has lived in Tuscany for 30 years. She has exhibited in Sweden, Switzerland and Italy. For many years she has been involved with Scandinavian tourism in Tuscany. She has also studied Classical Feng Shui and has been a practicing Vedic Art teacher for the last 10 years.
