 About the Artist:

Christine Carter Brown

Even as a small child I was extremely interested in learning how to make, create, and explore new things.  I made soap, taught myself to crochet and play instruments, made art from found objects, macramé, learned Indian beadwork on a loom, baked bread and so much more.  I just loved using my hands to create.  I went on to earn a BS in Studio Art from Towson University, with a concentration in metalworking.  I really have maintained that awe of creating ever since.  I have worked in almost every medium possible including, watercolors, oil and acrylic painting, textiles, quilting,  glass, sculpture, casting, and metals, welding, clay, wood, printmaking paper, and jewelry  I am also passionate about inspiring others and have taught art from the preschool level through college.  I have taught numerous workshops as well as afterschool programs, I believe that everyone is creative because they are made in the image of our creative God.  I love that the first thing God tells us about himself is that “In the Beginning He Created”  and we are his masterpiece! (Gen 1:1 and Ephesians 2:10)
