Christine was raised in Colorado and discovered her talent for the piano at an early age. She did not pursue a career in music, instead graduated from the University of Colorado in Business. School years were spent accompanying music and vocal groups, taking piano lessons and creating her own arrangements of her favorite songs. During her college years, she was inspired by George Winston and Peter Kater, and the piano remained a gratifying hobby throughout life. Christine immersed herself in her music after the loss of her mother, releasing her heartfelt emotions in her own compositions and inspiring her listeners. In 1991, she debuted on Sugo Record's solo piano compilation titled PIANO PORTRAITS and later, SUMMER STORIES. These compositions were also featured on Muzak channels. Today Christine continues to compose and record her piano compositions,and has released 3 more CDs of original works, as well as a Christmas CD and children's song collection. She believes playing the piano is such an emotional release and reflection of my life's experiences and feelings, and has always been an extremely gratifying way to express myself, often an escape. I feel so fortunate to have the support of my family and friends, which encourages me to pursue my dream. Christine.
