Here's a message I got from a friend of mine after posting the link to Happy*Mess (hope I speeled that write?! ha ha that's ME being a dork!!) Anyway, here's his comment: Love that artwork you posted. That is how I wish I could paint and draw. If I bought art, that is the type of stuff I'd hang. Thanks for sharing. Pretty cool, huh? Wanted to share with you. I love you!! Angela

Hi Christine,
Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed looking through your journals. I love your mandalas, and your cross section nature scenes.
Have a great day!

Hey Christine, This is a reply to a comment you made on Flickr. I just wanted to make sure you received it: I was so inspired by your art last night. I poured over your website/ blog for a good while - each design and color palette was so breathtaking. Do you use markers for most of your work? I just LOVE it. Do you have any licensing deals in the works? That needs to happen for you. I would buy your products in a heartbeat. - All the best, Meredith


Meredith, thank you very much for coming by and for joining my small facebook page :) your crosses and birds are bright and beautiful, please feel free to add a link here to your work.
i use microns for outlining, my far favorite for depth of blackness and length of use, as well as for smoothness and strength of the tip. for color i use mostly sharpies and bics. i have been adding copics as i can afford, and blick's. i also have a few pantones that i adore~ which i can only find in limited quantities at blick's.
i do not at this time have anything up for sale much less licensed, but i accept your compliment as encouragement to make prints available. 
thank you, christine :)   6.7.12

  1. Hi Christine - I just stumbled across your Flickr page today and love your drawings, and would be happy to buy some note cards from you if that is possible! I see that the last entry on this blog was from 2012 so you may not be looking here too often, I will see if i can contact you through Flickr too! Lydia Bosley LFBosley@Q.com Logsden, Oregon
