Christine Cortese Bio
“After 30 something years of landscape and still life painting I’ve changed my focus and started enjoying the figure and portrait of women mostly. It’s fun to just be able to stay in my studio especially when it’s dark outside. Being a plein-air painter, (painting from life outside) this wasn’t something I could do in the past. More recently I’ve been having fun with flowers and women and playing around with that. My past still life painting helped me in the study of painting flowers. I’m finding this to be more playful and inventive and as a result, I may become more abstract in my future landscape work.”
