CHRISTINE STUDIED INITIALLY WITH MIKE GILLESPIE (EPSTEIN'S ASSISTANT) AND THEN AT CAMBERWELL SCHOOL OF ART, LONDON. SHE WAS LUCKY TO HAVE BEEN TAUGHT FORMAL TRADITIONAL WORKING METHODS, APPROACHES AND TECHNIQUES THAT HAVE STOOD HER IN GOOD STEAD THROUGHOUT HER LONG CAREER IN SCULPTURE. she has been a full time professional sculptor since graduating.
AS A FIGURATIVE SCULPTOR, SHE WORKS PREDOMINANTLY IN CLAY, BUT ALSO DIRECTLY INTO PLASTER AND WAX. SHE THEN CASTS HER WORK INTO BRONZE, BRONZE RESIN, IRON RESIN AND CAST STONE.
Christine is classically trained, having studied in the 80's at camberwell school of arts in london. she is now based in her own purpose built studio here at court robert arts.
"Many of my family members have been artists, there have been wrought iron gate makers, dress designers, wood carvers, sculptors, landscape designers, photographers and cooks. Making things is in my genes, but I have also benefited from growing up in an art nurturing environment. My earliest memories are of drawing and sculpting with my grandfather." - CHRISTINE BAXTER
