Christine Hood is a Multi Media Artist and Art Educator. Working from her studio in her North Vancouver home Christine makes art, teaches, and hosts an annual artisan sale.
Using primarily metal, ceramic, textiles and found objects Christine takes her inspiration from her personal life, environment and surroundings.
Her teaching is an extension of her own art-making philosophy that self- expression and art made with personal meaning is an empowering way to give voice to the unique perspective of each student. For Christine the process of making art is as equally important as the finished piece, as each piece holds a narrative of the individuals emotions, believes and perspective.
Christine’s home, garden, and art studio also serves as a annual/semi-annual location for Hughes & Co Artisan Sale which features handmade gifts, plants, vintage clothing & accessories, edibles and more.
