Lo­ca­tion: US Web: www.quick­reaver.com Email: alizarin_­grif­fin@ya­hoo.com media: Conté crayons, char­coal, graphite, inks, oils Chris­tine’s in­spi­ra­tions lie in beauty gone askew, the devil in the de­tails and the hu­man an­i­mal. “Work­ing in a va­ri­ety of media has been tricky and re­ward­ing,” she says. “With dig­i­tal, there isn’t a colour you can’t pick, a change you can’t make. Noth­ing beats de­liv­ery to a client by sim­ply hit­ting Send.

“On the other hand, there’s some­thing so sat­is­fy­ing about work­ing with tra­di­tional media. The grit of pen­cil on pa­per, the smell of sol­vents, that hal­lowed orig­i­nal, which is al­most im­pos­si­ble to cre­ate dig­i­tally. Tra­di­tional art is de­li­ciously tan­gi­ble.”

For this artist, paint­ing has to fit around the roles of mother and wife: “Squeez­ing in time to make art has been a slip­pery bal­ance be­tween chores, chauf­feur­ing and an easily dis­tracted muse,” she says.
