Artist Profile: Christine Cafarella-Pearce AGRAF

Picture Christine began her career as a portrait and still life artist. She is also a keen outdoor painter, travelling and painting widely in Victoria and remote Australia. She lives in Healesville and her paintings of the Yarra Valley show her affinity and love for her local landscape, whilst her paintings of the Pilbara and Kimberley regions and far North Queensland speak of her great love of the outback. Christine is known for her unique colour and design which enables her to interpret mood more effectively and bring added meaning to her subject. She draws from The Heidelberg School and the French Impressionist Painters in her effort to exploring and integrates more creative ways to tell her stories.
Christine has hosted many exhibitions, including the 2014 Liberty Family Church, Healesville 40 hour Famine Fundraiser Exhibition (15 charcoal works, 13 of which were portraits) and the 2013 “A Joint Perspective”, a collaboration of works by Christine, Di King and Raelene Sharp.
PictureHer works can be found in private and corporate art collections throughout the world.  Christine has been published in The Australian Artist, Antiques and Art, Real Estate Weekly and Yarra Valley Country Life. A Fellow of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists, she is well respected as an art judge, workshop tutor and demonstrator and is a valued member of AGRA, Sherbrooke Art Society, Yarra Valley Open Studios Program and Valley 10.
