b.1943 Christine McKechnie trained at Southampton in the United Kingdom and Kingston Schools of Art and started to develop her collage technique whilst living in the United States in the 1960s. She initially used brightly coloured printed papers but has since progressed to softer, hand-coloured papers which are cut and layered in intricate mosaics to create her unique pictures. Christine’s landscapes, coastal scenes and still life pictures have achieved much acclaim, including a special award at the 1983 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition for a work with paper. Christine has been a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibitions since 1981 and has held several one woman shows. Her work features in many private and public collections.
