Hi, my name is Christine Burke, and welcome to my art world. I am an Artist, Author, and Health Coach who loves helping people tap into their creativity. As a former elementary and special education teacher, I have spent 33 years educating people on various subjects such as reading, writing, health, and art. I enjoy teaching virtual and in-person paint parties, drawing, painting, and writing classes.
My mom always said I started drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil. I took art in high school and was all set to go to art school in Philadelphia, but a twist of fate led me in a different direction. Instead, I attended LaSalle University, majored in Elementary and Special Education, and earned my master's in Reading from New Jersey State College. I did find my way back to art and studied under Karl Kuerner, a leading Brandywine artist, who was mentored by Andrew Wyeth.
Another one of my passions is writing. I am the author and illustrator of A Dream Inside, a children's book about the lifecycle of the monarch butterfly. I also have a story published in Chicken Soup for the Soul - Reboot Your Life. Her most recent book is The Well-Nourished Artist: 8 Ways to Feed Your Creative Soul.

"Spending time in nature feeds my creative soul and inspires my artwork. I love painting whimsical, fun, happy art that tells a story and heals. My favorite things to paint are trees, children and angels."
