Christina will be tutoring a workshop at the Transylvania School of Botanic Art and Illustration, set in beautiful rural Transylvania, 8-14th September 2025. Classes are limited to 6 so there is plenty of attention, tailored to each painter’s needs. We will be focusing mainly on seeds and fruits, gathering material from the meadows surrounding the village, and with a local botanist to help us identify our finds. Previous visitors have called it a combination of master class and house party! For more information and booking contact


Following their successful 2022 show Christina and Jo held another Opposite Ends exhibition at the Hillier Gardens near Romsey, 19 – 27 June 2024, with new work by both artists. Some of Christina’s work is still available for sale – click on OPPOSITE ENDS 24 in the main menu.



The Herbal Year, Folklore, History & Remedies,  an informal history of medicinal plants was published on April 23rd 2024. Illustrated with Christina’s detailed watercolours, it covers many well-known plants and the sometimes surprising ways people since earliest times have used them for health and well-being. Available from Yale University Press and in all good bookshops!

Illustrations from the book


Christina is taking part in a new project to document in drawings and paintings the flora of the New Forest National Park in Hampshire, UK. This is not a formal florilegium and painters may work in their usual style to portray the plants – especially those that are endangered by climate change. If you would like to be part of this ongoing project and would like further information please contact Christina
