Christine Olmstead is an abstract artist whose work has exploded since releasing her first collection in 2015. Her pieces are what she calls “internal landscapes.” With collectors and corporations, around the world seeking exclusive contracts and custom commissions, Christine currently sells originals and prints worldwide.
Christine has been painting and drawing several days a week since she was 18 months old. Her mother, an art historian, stressed the importance of art history from a young age. Her journey has taken her from impressionism in childhood, to realism in middle school through college mastering various mediums and finally to abstraction in her adult life and professional career.
Christine’s works are conceptual, abstract and mixed media. Her work focuses on movement, mood, and through the use of color, metallic, and reflective elements she conveys energy and story. It is through a deeply meditative practice, combined with music that she exercises her synesthesia and painting practice. Christine’s paintings are conceptual in nature focusing on healing, seeking peace, restoring painful moments and memories by infusing light and beauty into the works. Christine resides and paints in Northern Virginia.
