About the Artist


Christine McCarthy is best known for her hand-coloured lino prints of flora and landscapes. She has been working as an artist for over 20 years. Christine gained a Diploma in Fine Art Painting from the South Australian School of Art in 1976. It was while studying Printmaking at the SA School of Art with Barbara Hanrahan, that her interest in printmaking began.

The pattern of nature, particularly the line and texture of plant forms have provided the theme for much of Christine’s work.

Among her many influences are Matisse and also the Japanese woodblock artist Hiroshige.

Since 1985 Christine and her partner have been dividing their time between their home in Adelaide and a beach house at Corny Point on Yorke Peninsula. The horizon, the coastal vegetation and the changing farmland have become an important part of her work.

Christine has been a teacher with the Ruth Tuck Art School since 1981 and is Co-Proprietor and Co-Director of the school.

Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout Australia.

In 1988 she held the inaugural exhibition at The Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney. Her work has attracted acclaim and interest internationally. In 2000 and 2002, Christine held successful exhibitions in Tokyo Japan.

Christine recently exhibited new works at Art Images Gallery, Norwood. Among the prints were a series of figurative images, displaying an exciting new theme to her work.
