Christine Jaramillo Bass was born in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, USA. She was sixth among nine brothers and sisters, and spent her primary and high school years growing up in the small mining town, Silverton, Colorado. She attended Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado.
As far back as she can remember, Christine loved all artistic endeavors that were available to her, and spent as much of her free time as possible roaming the mountains, absorbing the grandeur of nature's scenic beauty. Her romance with the landscape began with the wind whispering through the spruce trees, the heavy laden winter snows and the fresh renewing spirit of spring; their changing beauty continues to inspire her to capture their spirit in paint. The rural scenes of Virginia have now entered that dance.
Today, Christine has one son, two daughters and seven grandchildren. She has worked as the San Juan County, CO EMS Director, the San Juan County, CO Deputy Coroner, and is currently a Chiropractic Assistant and Office Manager in Roanoke, Virginia.
Though she is currently studying with the professional award winning artist, Johannes Vloothuis, Christine is primarily a self-taught artist with a critical eye for perfection. Her artwork is a unique blend of scenic perspectives that lean toward the impressionistic but yet are so realistic that the viewer feels a need to become a part of the scene.
Christine's unique flair for compositions of subject matter, her subtle blending of pastel colors and watercolors, and her extraordinary talent for producing depths of field are truly heartwarming and pleasing to the eye. One cannot help being drawn into the scenes as the mind visualizes the stories that surely must have inspired the pastel works of art that are Christine's exceptional talent.
Christine's mastery of watercolors, pastels, and combinations of watercolors and pastels may be viewed by contacting her at email@example.com or on her website at: cbassart.com
