Christine E. S. Code

I am a full-time artist born and raised in rural Saskatchewan, Canada. Saskatchewan is known as the Land of the Living Skies - a common theme in my paintings. I like to explore other subjects as well and aim to convey a particular mood or atmosphere in each piece. I enjoy the techniques of impressionism and tonalism; usually painting alla prima - wet on wet.

 

I have three children and I am an avid gardener.

 

 

My husband is a woodworker and my personal framer.

More about frames: Some of my paintings are offered with frames. They are handcrafted out of solid wood and custom to each individual painting. No stain, mouldings, or paint - the specialty wood is carefully selected to compliment the painting with a clearcoat varnish to preserve the wood's natural color, installed with hanging gear and ready to display.
