After 25 years as a project manager in the design and construction industry Christine picked up a camera in 2010 as a way to face the onset of her disability and accompanying limited mobility. She utilizes her experience working with the design process and interaction with people as a starting point to make photographic images. Christine's photo essay Last Car Running and artist interview was published in Mono Visions and Don't Take Pictures Magazines, selected by the International Art & Artists for a solo exhibition at Hillyer Art Space in Washington, DC and featured at the HEAD ON Photo Festival Projections in Sydney, Australia. Christine lives in Washington, DC.

Last Car Running
". . . a project that is at once a worthy piece of social history and a visual feast, featuring billows of white smoke, showers of sparks, barrel-necked drivers, and impromptu celebrations-punctuated with sledgehammers-on top of cars."
Washington City Paper
