Christine Hingston graduated from Claremont College of Fine Art, Australia in 1973.
She worked and lived in London and Ireland and travelled throughout Europe. Since her return to Australia creating art has been Christine’s continuing passion.
Today Christine divides her time between living and painting in Australia, inspired by those iconic colours of blue skies, red dusty soil and hot summer days at the beach and her studio in Ubud, Bali, where the soft colours of ripening rice, magical birds and butterflies and flowers are her daily views.
The artist uses many techniques and materials in her paintings including oil and acrylic paint, rust and verdigris paint, charcoal, gold leaf and collage.
Christine also indulges her passion for ceramics working with stoneware, raku and earthenware clay – firing in wood fired and soda kilns.
The artist is represented in solo and featured group exhibitions every year. Her paintings are included in collections in London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Moscow, Los Angeles, and throughout Australia.
