Gros Morne Park, NFLD
About the Gros Morne Experience:
Christine Koch is an Alberta-born painter and printmaker who for
the past thirteen years has made her home in Newfoundland. She mostly
works out of a large studio on the top floor of an 1893 harbourfront
building in the city of St. John's.
Her work is inspired both by her travels and by her immediate physical
environments - domestic and natural - as well as by the various
animals, plants, and objects with which she lives.
In addition to her studio work, her career has involved academic
scholarship, art administration, curating, jurying, critical writing,
teaching, and conducting workshops.
When she is not working - either in her studio or en plein air
- Christine Koch will most likely be found in her garden (which
she likes to consider a work of art) or hiking one of the many spectacular
trails around the island. When she is not travelling, or at her
summer residence and studio in Gros Morne National Park, she resides
happily in St. John's with two dogs, two cats , and a geologist.
