Christine Koch is a painter and printmaker who draw her inspiration and imagery from Canada’s mountain and northern environments.
For the past twenty years she has made her home in Newfoundland. There, she divides her time between St. John’s, the province’s capital city, and Woody Point, an enclave community in Gros Morne National Park.
She has also travelled and worked in other remote and beautiful environments, as Visiting Artist with a number of scientific research teams. Her work comes out of those experiences, and offers her interpretation of, particularly, the dramatic geology and geomorphology of some of Canada’s most iconic wild places. These have included: Gros Morne National Park, northern Labrador, Baffin Island, the Yukon, and the Rocky Mountains.
Christine Koch has exhibited across the country in many solo and group exhibitions, and her paintings and original prints are in major Canadian public and corporate collections and in private collections worldwide.
In addition to her studio and exhibition work, her career has involved scholarship, art administration, curating, jurying, critical writing, and teaching.
