Local Artists on Display

September - October artist: Christine M. Casarano

Christine M. Casarano is a self-taught acrylic artist with a background in cosmetology, and she recently retired as an esthetician instructor. In addition, she has published poetry and is known for her Christmas cards. She has won an art award in the Park in Maine and also won an award for a Christmas card for the Lawrence Eagle Tribune.

Christine divides her time between the seacoast of New Hampshire and the coast of Maine. Her work has been exhibited in private and at association galleries in New Hampshire and Maine. Christine has always been inspired by the old masters’ sense of dark and light, referred to as “chiaroscuro.” This is a style developed by the Italian master, Caravaggio. Christine’s goal is to paint realism as beautiful as possible, and to learn and grow in her art while doing so.
