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.
