Christine Buchler
Contemporary Art painter

Christine Buchler was born and raised in Switzerland. In her early twenties, she started to paint and lived with other painters.

She emigrated to Canada with her family in 1981.

In 2000 she earned a bachelor in Nursing Science and continued to study literature.

She slowly restarted to paint more often and is now painting almost daily.

Christine is self taught. She has been taking several courses with Bonny Roberts, as well as Anne Mary Harvey and other teachers who reside in the Okanagan Valley.

In l999 she was inspired by a female painter that she met in San Felipe, Mexico. She
describes her as a 'reincarnated' Frida, but her themes of women and children agree with Christine's desire to express color and movement.

She always loved the surrealists and expressionists, but in her twenties she painted
abstract. Indeed, she is again mostly attracted to abstract painting and uses media like acrylic and resin.

'Abstract because it enables all viewers to paint their own
pictures; they see in a painting what they want to see.'

In January 2014 she was accepted to FCA as an active member.
