Christine Bush Roman is an artist and educator living on Johns Island just outside of Charleston, South Carolina. She earned her Master of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Georgia in 2013 and has taught art to all ages, from pre-school to adults.
Christine’s colorful and vibrant works are rooted in drawing, painting, and collage. Work in acrylics, watercolors, inks, chalk pastels, and collaged papers and fabrics dominate her current studio practice.
Christine uses art to process current events, as well as trials in her personal life. Color, line, and shape are always important focuses, but each piece revolves around a central concept as she creates. Mental illness is a recurring theme, and interests in neurodiversity, activism, environmentalism, and the struggles of motherhood and womanhood are common subjects in the work. Christine's visual language is constantly being informed by environment, memory, and the common obstacles of everyday life. Every piece she creates is unique and contains its own narrative, but her work is unified by a distinctive approach to color and mark-making.
Christine and her husband currently homeschool their two daughters on Johns Island, where they live in a cozy house with too many animals.
