In 2015 Christine was awarded a merit-based grant to attend
The Vermont Studio Center artist residency program.
The Vermont Studio Center was founded by artists in 1984.
Situated along the banks of the Gihon River in the historic

supported by the unspoiled beauty of the northern Green Mountains. Over the last 30 years, VSC has grown to become the largest international artists' and writers' residency program in the United States. Their mission is to provide studio residencies in an inclusive, international community, honoring creative work as the communication of spirit through form.
