The process is the important thing, the struggle, excitement and energy which is so much a part of the creative process can be intoxicating, some subjects become favourites contributing to my personal language and allowing me to indulge in the sheer pleasure of creating.
— Christine Reilly


Christine’s work demonstrates her love of both European travel and “people watching”.   It chronicles not only the progressions of her subjects and style but also her own journey as an artist and woman.

The current series of paintings take you on a journey across the figurative, from her interpretation of flamboyant French and Italian images to evocative recollections closer to home. She portrays all her characters with colour and movement making them come alive on the canvas.
