Home About the Artist Gallery Media Contact

I am so happy to share my love of art with you through the vehicle of this website.  It is my deepest wish that the love, joy and excitement that I feel while absorbed in painting be awakened in your heart when you view my work.  May this inspire you to express your own creative spirit in whatever way moves you.  It is my firm belief that ‘the artist’ lies within everyone – waiting, longing to be utilized and expressed with the abandon of a child.

The inspiration for my work arises primarily through my daily practice of meditation - the world within us is so boundless and sublime, never ceasing to amaze me.  Inspiration arises also when I’m surrounded by nature, beholding its unique forms, textures and colors.  I am equally moved by the diversity of this world we live in – it’s people and myriad cultures.

From this inspiration, I offer this work to you.

May your hearts always sing with the ecstasy of your true Self and may we all have the courage to express it freely.

Christine Girvani O’Brien
