Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Christine K.Harris

Christine is a professional art therapist with a Master’s Degree from Eastern Virginia Medical School. The core beliefs of this profession, including stressing process over product and using art as a vehicle for self-expression, are important in her artwork. Spending many years teaching art to others and helping people through art therapy, she only recently began exhibiting her artwork. Today she works primarily as an artist, continuing to practice art therapy on a part time basis.  Her life experiences, including sharing art with others, are translated into her artwork.

Christine lives in Chesapeake, VA and shares her life with her husband, Ben, and their two cats Mango and Lil Kitty.  When Christine is not making art, she says she is thinking about making art and deepening her connection to nature by hiking and running.
