Christine Keech & Scott McLeod
Exhibition date: October 2012
“I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember. I was born and raised in Windsor, Ontario, Canada and received my BA degree from the University of Windsor with a major in visual arts. I moved to Edmonton for a few years in the 1990’s, and did some watercolour work for the Edmonton Symphony and Concordia University College. I moved back to Windsor in 1999 and have been here ever since. I also received my Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Windsor and have been fortunate to have a teaching job at a private school for the last ten years. My work has shifted from watercolour to acrylic and mixed media on canvas. Being raised by a close-knit, Christian family, I express my love of them and my feelings toward the lessons life has taught me through use of texture, Christian symbols and colour in my work. Many times hidden images appear without me being aware that they exist until I see the finished piece. My work is more abstract, but there are elements of reality mixed in with those of a spiritual nature.”
