Christine Porter

Christine Porter is a full time practicing artist, living in Lismore in northern NSW, Australia. 

She is a painter, printmaker, teacher and publisher.

Her watercolour paintings tell visual stories about the sheep and wool industries of rural  Queensland and NSW, specialising in images of the iconic Australian shearing shed. Her etchings often tell more personal narratives.

She exhibits regularly in solo shows at various regional and commercial galleries, including NERAM, Lismore, Tweed and Toowoomba. She has artwork in the collection of the National Gallery in Canberra, as well as in other public, corporate and public collections worldwide. She has been awarded more than 200 prizes for her artwork including the Kenneth Macqueen Award for watercolour in 2002. 

In 1996 she was accepted as an exhibiting member to the prestigious Australian Watercolour Institute. In 2006 she was awarded a Bachelor of Visual Art from Southern Cross University, the same year she was selected as the  Macgregor Fellow (for overseas travel) by the University of Southern Qld. 

She teaches, writes and speaks about watercolour, printmaking, creativity and art-business. She works with adults and children; in schools, workshops, universities and one-on-one. Her educational theories are about creating skills and encouraging independence in the artists she works with.
