Christine Spence

Hertford, Hertfordshire

Christine was born and raised in North London. She studied at Hornsey College of Art and practised as a graphic designer before qualifying as a full time lecturer in both further and higher education. As a designer, many of her ideas were conveyed with the use of marker pens. The spontaneity needed for visualising in this medium made the transition to watercolour a natural development. She also works in acrylics, oils and mixed media.
She exhibits successfully and has produced limited editions and cards of her work. The subject of her paintings varies according to the many topics covered on her art courses.
She has worked and run courses from her studio in Hertfordshire for many years, written articles for The Leisure Painter, and run workshops in conjunction with The Artists and Illustrators magazine and Winsor and Newton.
