Encouraged by her parents at a young age with oil painting lessons and a professional water color set while growing up in NY’s Hudson Valley, Christine Debrosky always knew that she would be involved in art. Besides the access to world class museums and galleries for study and inspiration, living in the Northeast meant that she learned much about color.

It was by taking a workshop with Albert Handell that she was introduced to the rich jewel tones of pastel. Her work in this medium has garnered rainbows of ribbons in shows from coast to coast in the US, and in Italy, France, and Russia. Coming full circle, and today also working in oil, her career has steadily progressed, showing with such prestigious groups as Oil Painters of America, the Pastel Society of America, and the American Impressionist Society.

Currently she lives in North Arizona, with her husband Wayne, in a completely renovated home , complete with a custom designed dream studio. There, overlooking the red rock glow of Sedona, the abundance of sunlight , richly hued shadows, and nuanced greys of the high desert allows for continued learning and inspiration.
