Christine Woodside was born in Aberdeen in 1946. In 1963 she began studying at the Grays Scool of Art. Since graduating she has exhibited continuously – most frequently in Scotland at the Open Eye Gallery but more recently at Thompsons Gallery and Ainscough Contemporary Art in London.
Christine has won many awards including in 2002 the Armour Award of the RGI.Christine was elected a member of the Royal Scottish society of Painters in Watercolour in 1993 and The Royal Glasgow Institute in 1999. Much of the attraction in her painting is its wonderful texture – layers of oil, watercolour,pastel and applied paper. This is complemented by a deep understanding of colour and clarity of light inspired by her frequent travels to North Africa, Italy and Spain
