Christine Wilson – October Featured Artist



Christine Wilson spent most of her life living in Virginia Beach. As a Navy brat, she always lived near the water. Once introduced to the Eastern Shore of Virginia, she immediately fell in love with its quaint towns, peaceful atmosphere and vibrant artist community. By 2014, she had made the shore her home, settling with her pastor husband in a comfortable beach cottage in Silver Beach. Primarily a colored pencil artist, she also paints, makes jewelry, sews, arranges flowers and enjoys needlework. She chose drawing as her main focus due to its easy accessibility and the ability to draw in any location.

Over the past few years, Christine has developed a drawing style of layering color upon color to create an almost paint-like surface and appearance. Drawing from photographs, she prefers subjects with complicated backgrounds and an abundance of detail. She enjoys the challenge of giving her drawings an artistic interpretation while capturing a photo-like sense of realism. Her subject matter consists of wildlife and domestic animals, portraits, cityscapes and seascapes and anything else that captures her eye. Her theory is, “if you can take a photo of it, I can draw it.”



Come see Christine’s amazing drawings through the month of October at Eastern Shore Art Gallery, 59 Market Street, Onancock, VA. Hours: Thursday and Friday, 10 AM – 4 PM and Saturday, 10 AM – 3 PM.
