Can’t draw a stick figure or a straight line?
Great, because there are very few of those in nature! I’ve created a six-step roadmap to sketching success with a 3-video training series that will give you the skills and confidence to start sketching today.
So, sign up and you’ll get my free video mini-course that I call ‘Stick Figures to Song Birds in Just 60 Minutes’ and you’ll be sketching realistic flora and fauna in no time. Well, one hour to be exact!
"Christine helped me to become more confident and excited about drawing. Plus Christine’s videos are very approachable, educational, and fun"
-Nicole Weprin, student
I’ve been drawing and painting nature all my life and love sharing the joy I experience when I’m in the field with students.
As a former classroom teacher, I know how to lead students in a logical, step by step progression, giving them the knowledge to proceed with skill and confidence.
My advanced degrees in both biology and scientific illustration inform my work and teaching style.
I travel regularly throughout the Western Hemisphere from Alaska to Borneo, sketching the flora and fauna I encounter and teaching workshops to both adults and youth in such diverse places as Mexico, Honduras, Jamaica, and the United States.
I make my home in central Oregon, on the eastern slope of the volcanic Cascades mountain range, where the pine forests meet the sage steppe.
When not teaching, I enjoy hiking, bird watching and horseback riding.
