Born in France, Christine Toh has been living and working in Liverpool since 1992. She has always been interested in the creative process, but it is only when she discovered print making shortly after moving to the UK that she slowly moved on to become a practising multidisciplinary and textile artist. Christine has a BA (First Class Hons) in Fashion and Textile Design from John Moores University, 2008. She works from her studio space at Arena Studios in Liverpool.
Christine works with textile and paper, and is interested in the layering effect of printing techniques and plays with colours. Her work tries to capture the fragility within the elements surrounding us, and the traces and marks left behind with the passage of time. The journey into her love for textile, threads and colours started by observing her mum, who has been practising traditional embroidery all her life with patience, assiduity and rigor.
