on Monday, November 11, Christine McCall demonstrated Photoshop. She began using Photoshop software to create her well-known Kaleidoscope and Clock designs in 2008. One day she had a vision of a woman riding a snail in a mushroom forest. Not really knowing how to draw, she spent countless hours experimenting with collage compositing in Photoshop. In the end she created what would be the first illustration of her Fairy Tale collection. Five years later she is amassing dozens of illustrations for two children's fairytale books.

Combining her love of nature and passion for art, she paints large abstract paintings in vibrant colors.  Her paintings distill the light, the intense colors, and the constant movement in nature. The final visual is pure, ethereal, and cosmic with no physical references.
