Christine Sage - Artist / Director
Early influences on artist Christine Sage was her study under the mentorships of William Ferguson and John Borrack.
Her work changed direction from the exterior landscape to the interior after an Artist-in-Residence position at the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre at Bundanon on the Shoalhaven River.
A travelling scholarship to Yemen furthered this direction and resulted in an exhibition of donated works which raised funds to put a roof on a school in Jibla, Saudi Arabia.
Christine has travelled and painted the deserts of South and Central Australia and has spent considerable time researching in Victoria’s Mallee.
Her body of work has resulted in exhibitions throughout Victoria in group and solo shows and she played a large role in the Mama Serpentine project featured on the ABC Message Stick program.
In 2005, her first illustrated book Storm in a Teacup was published by St Luke’s Innovative Resources (Bendigo) and she also completed a Master of Visual Arts at Monash University. An art textbook for schools, Drawing Made Easy, was published in 2009 and is used in schools across Australia.
She has been an Artist-in-Residence in kindergarten, primary and secondary schools, with a focus on creating sculptures and murals for small and large spaces.
