Christine St Flour
Featured Artist December 2019
Born in Sussex, England with an English/Scottish heritage, i grew up in
the Western Suburbs, before moving to the Blue Mountains later in life.
I have always had an interest in the art world, and working with my
hands. I have been a potter, working and teaching in my own home
studio, which although rewarding, wasn't great for my health. From
there I studied and taught many forms of healing, including Reiki and
meditation, which at the time helped me to get back on track with my
health and my art.
Over the years I tried out the various media styles, but nothing seemed
to feel right until i discovered the beauty of pastels, from that point
on I was hooked.
From there grew my love of portraiture, be it people or animals. I
just love seeing a subject come to life on paper and using the rich
colours we see in the beauty of flower studies and nature.
Then I discovered the versatility of using PanPastels which I feel
compliments my usual soft pastels and pencils. And with this I
felt something shift again within my artworks, it also changed the way I
approached my work.
I have created many commissioned works over the years by many including
world renowned Indigenous artist Robyn Caughlan. I am very
fortunate to have many of my works bought and hanging in private
collections throughout the Blue Mountains, NSW and Interstate.
I have exhibited and sold at many local and Sydney Art Exhibitions over
the last few years, Camden Art Prize, Art of Sydney Awards, Hawkesbury
Art Show, Penrith Art Show throughout the Blue Mountains and now Central
I am now enjoying living on the Central Coast and discovering the vast
art opportunities on offer.
I am once again accepting commissioned artworks. Please feel free
