Christine Camilleri’s studio, “Summer Light”, is a step outside of her home in Chilliwack, British Columbia, in the Fraser Valley, a little over an hour's drive from Vancouver, Canada. Christine has enjoyed drawing and painting since she was old enough to hold a crayon.
She is an Associate Signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (AFCA) and a Master Signature member of the Pastel Artists of Canada (MPAC).
She creates west coast scenes, paintings with western themes, contemplative landscapes and wildlife paintings. An experienced hiker and outdoorswoman, she enjoys flyfishing (she even ties her own flies), backpacking, camping and skiing. She has travelled extensively throughout western Canada, including the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, the Oregon coast and much of the western and southwestern United States.
To date her greatest accomplishment has been having her painting “Summer Pastures” accepted as a finalist out of 14,000 entrants in the Artists Magazine 26th International Competition in 2009.
She enjoys working in different media such as oils and acrylics but her special love is reserved for pastels and she is a strong advocate for the medium.
