Christine Lashley studied as a teen in Paris at the Parsons Art Institute and the Sorbonne, continuing on to earn her BFA at Washington University in St. Louis. She worked for several years in the fashion industry in Europe, then as a muralist and graphic designer, but turned her interest to fine art soon thereafter. Christine's paintings have been shown nationally and internationally, and continue to win top awards. Her work has also been featured in American Artist Magazine, The Washington Post, and North Light Publications.
Nature's unique colors, harmonies, and contrasts offer a visual feast that I love to capture in my art. I feel so fortunate to be able to share my visual joy of our natural world, and help students learn to see their unlimited creative potential. Much of my work is created by painting directly outdoors and my studio work is infused with years of outdoor experience. As an art teacher for over 10 years, I encourage a flexible approach to painting (watercolor or oil) with special techniques for achieving loose brushwork and clean colors. Students are encouraged to develop their own painting style and classes are for all levels.
