Paint Parties! 


A paint party with The Joyful Art Garden is an experience where a community comes together; a widow makes new friends; birthdays are celebrated!

It's a place where we create, heal, laugh, and enjoy life!

Mobile paint parties: 

We bring the party to YOU!

Space to hold your paint party is also available.


Beginning September 2022:

The Joyful Art Club

The Joyful Art Club was formed because of a lively interest in creating joyful art and forming friendships with other creative women. Each month we meet in the St. Thomas Aquinas Parish Center, in Derry, NH and explore a new creative project while enjoying light refreshments and fellowship.

All about Christine

I want the art I create to bring joy to your life!  Whether it’s a pet portrait, a K9 memorial portrait, a silly puppy or a paint party painting, the goal is to make you smile!


I'm an award-winning, internationally published artist and writer based in New Hampshire.  Since 1986 I've created animal portraits, illustrated picture books and I have taught drawing through private lessons and public high school classes.


In 2016 I was made an Honorary Member of the NH Canine Trooper's Association for the memorial portraits I paint for the handler's of deceased K9's.  


I create art out of my Manchester, New Hampshire and Wells, Maine studios.  When I'm not creating art I can be found chasing my adorable Pomeranians and Mini-Australian Shepherd around our home, tending to my gardens or working out in the gym with my husband!
