Christine is exhibiting at the "Affordable Art Fair" at the Castle Dairy in Kendal, Cumbria.
Welcome to the online Shop and Gallery for Artist Christine Rooney. Here you will be able to view and buy original artwork, giclee prints and greeting cards.
You will also be able to view the paintings that were specifically done in conjunction with the British Telecom Olympic Project ‘Storytellers’ which aimed to leave a lasting legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
In 2011 Christine was one of 10 Artists in the UK selected by BT to tell the story of the run up to the London 2012 Olympic Games. Christine worked on these paintings for a year and won several awards, had her paintings exhibited at the Athletes Ball, hung in Team GB House and shown at various venues that Olympic Athletes attended. All Christine’s Olympic paintings are available as Giclee prints. Christine regularly gives talks and demonstrations to Art Clubs, Art Societies and WI's.
Christine lives and works in the Lake District in the North of England. After gaining a degree at Lancaster University she taught for several years in Colleges, Community Centres and Adult Education centres. In recent years Christine gave up many of her classes to concentrate on developing her own practice. This proved a successful move as she now sells her work regularly and has original paintings in collections in Australia, Canada, Germany and Spain.
Christine works in oils, acrylics, water based/acrylic inks and mixed media. She loves to paint a variety of subject matter such as harbours, village scenes, flowers and still life. Many of her subjects are based on real life everyday situations. Some are complete figments of her imagination. Colour is a very important element in all her paintings together with the story telling aspect where the viewer can often make up their own allegory.
Christine demonstrates her painting techniques to art groups, societies and WI's all over Cumbria and Lancashire and she gives talks on her year as an Olympic Artist.
