Christine Alfery’s studio is nestled in the woods in Vilas County Wisconsin on a lake on an Indian Reservation. There she finds the peace and freedom to paint. Laura Fiser, Curator of Collections at the Paine Art Center in Oshkosh, described her work as “an exceptional mix of spontaneity and expressiveness.” Her palette is both understated and lush.” Julie Ganzer from the University of Wisconsin-Madison states that, “through the artist’s use of line, texture and bright color, simple ‘organizms’ almost literally bounce and wriggle through …” her work. These “organizms” Christine calls “critters” and they appear in all of her work along with other visual symbols such as ladders, wheels, kisses, hugs, whirly gigs and other playful things. Christine tells stories with these visual symbols about things she loves and cares for. Her work, according to national watercolor artist Stephen Quiller, is “playful and has a nice energy.”
Christine shows her contemporary, conceptual work nationally and internationally. She competes in watercolor competitions around the world. She has won over 100 national awards and is a signature member of 10 national watercolor societies. Her studio is open by appointment. She welcomes and treasures visits from art lovers from all over the country. She welcomes your visit to her studio nestled in the northwoods. All of Christine’s work is for sale.
