About the Artist

Christine comes from long line of junk dealers. She'd rather be out diggin' in a dump site than shopping at the mall. She lives in rural Colorado where there's lots of rusty junk and the malls are far far away. She collects salvaged metal from thrift shops, garage sales, friends and sometimes strangers who leave treasures on her doorstep.

She began smashing buttons one winter day to vent some of the frustration that comes from simply being a full time artist in this economy.  One piece of junk led to another and now she smashes everything she can get her hands on. Her dream is to own a steamroller and smash big things.
