Christine Gedye was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Growing up, the visual and performing arts were the domain of her creative older siblings. In fact, Christine had no facility or interest in drawing or painting for the first thirty-five years of her life. Instead, after earning a bachelor’s degree from St. Olaf’s College in 1987, she worked writing and editing books and magazines. In 2001, while doing research for a book proposal on the homes and studios of artists, Christine signed up for a drawing class to understand basic art terminology, which had her hooked. Two years of “background research” later, she committed to full-time art school with the goal of becoming a professional artist. Most of Christine’s training has been at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, with a year at the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney, Australia. She continues to take classes and workshops when she can.
Inspired by her artistic forbearers, including Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, George Inness, and Mark Rothko, Christine makes oil paintings which capture the tranquility of taking a stroll on a foggy morning. Through her process, she aims to translate her reverence for the natural world into paint, distilling her surroundings into their most essential elements. By capturing transient moments of illumination, the stillness of trees in the forest, or the serenity of a lake on a warm afternoon, Christine hopes to instill a sense of peace in the viewer, reminding them of their own breathtaking experiences with nature. Christine lived in New York, London, and San Francisco before settling in Seattle with her husband, where they raised their daughter. She currently lives near Green Lake, the location that inspires many of her paintings.
