Biography

Christine Relton and Tom Marine have been collaborating artistically for the past 18 years. Their work is described as Representational, starting with a core idea of a real place or event. Taking inspiration from travel to help colours appear stronger and more memorable, they work together through a process of over painting and adjustment. This is achieved through a share of duties; Tom primarily in charge of under-painting and Christine painting the composition. They have shown their work at art fairs across the UK and abroad, including; New York, California, Milan, Singapore, Utrecht, Amsterdam, Paris, Stockholm, Brussels and Singapore. They have been commissioned by a number of prestigious institutions, producing work for Detroit Airport in the USA, The Sherlock Holmes Hotel in London and Headingley Stadium in Leeds. They feature in The Dictionary of Artists in Britain since 1945 by David Buckman, and the Who’s Who In Art 2012, Edition 35.
