Christine Olga Smith grew up in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. Her work as a designer, landscape painter and curator has brought her to an understanding that the process of discovering, exploring the magnificence of nature, the unique identity of humanity’s many cultures, the beauty of art and civilization through superb design can help enlighten the whole world…and then around again.
She hopes to have the opportunity to simultaneously share this knowledge and learn in return. Her series of oil paintings from nature entitled “Compositions in the Greek Landscape 2014” were on exhibit at the U.S. Embassy in Abu Dhabi in April, 2014. Her design project “My Sun II” was exhibited by Al-Riwaq Gallery, Bahrain in March 2016; and her short animation, “Like, Share & Follow: Sea Turtles Hatching,” was exhibited as part of the Post Studio Micro Residency Show, Houston, Texas, 12/2016.
