Christine Dobbs-Yoshihara

Christine has always developed her personal art of drawing, painting and collage parallel to her 40 year professional career as a graphic designer at Walt Disney Imagineering. After experiencing a great loss 15 years ago, painting became her lifeline and she began concentrating on work with acrylics. Christine paints primarily from the unconscious, intuitively pulling shapes and colors informed by nature that reflect her own personal growth and healing.

Having grown up in rural Michigan surrounded by verdant fields and trees, she is continually drawn to her connection with the natural world. The flower and plant-like images and shapes that surface in her work also represent the continuing and natural growth around us, the regeneration of life; a metaphor for life here on earth.
