For the past twenty-six years, Christin’s art work has reflected her appreciation for nature through her landscape painting, both in plein air and in her larger studio works. She has studied with well known Bay Area artists Pam Glover, Mel Adamson, Stanley Goldstein, and Chester Arnold. She paints in the style of classical realism, influenced by the Tonalists as well as contemporary landscape painter Russell Chatham. Christin’s paintings of the Marin County hills and coastal regions reflect her strong connection with the land, and bring to life the unique mood and beauty of each setting. She is especially attracted to the warm colors and elongated shadows that appear in the late afternoon. It has been said that her art work evokes the deep, rich sounds of the cello.
