'Morning Papamoa Beach' is a series of work Christie started during 2020, getting back to basics of what inspires her as an artist; The peace and serenity of the beach in the early morning and the play of light. The serenity and haven of Christie's daily beach walks suddenly became even more essential. Covid-19 Lock Down has made her appreciate how important these things are in her life, and she hopes her paintings allow you to connect with the beauty that inspired them.
You'll notice these natural and landscape works of Christie's to be completely different to her 'Revealing the Positive' series. She loves to be able to switch modes depending on what the subject requires and what she feels like painting. Christie lives close to the beach so it is only natural that she will see things on her almost daily walks that just have to be captured. Space, distance, and unusual objects or views are common themes.
