A whimsical world of mixed media art fueled by coffee and imagination

Welcome to my studio. My name is Christine and if this is your first time here take a minute to look around. The studio is a reflection of my mind. It’s where I share my love of art, creating and mess making. On this page, you will find a snippet of my latest posts, notes on upcoming events, my social links and some of my featured art. So grab a cup of your favorite beverage and stay awhile. If you want to learn my full story, you can click here.
