Christine Bush Roman is an artist and educator living in 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. 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 information. 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.
