"Abstract art focused on seeking peace, choosing light, and bringing beauty into the lives of my collectors."Christine Olmstead is a conceptual and abstract mixed-media artist based in Northern Virginia. Her works have been widely exhibited across the United States since she released her first collection in 2015. Olmstead describes her paintings as “internal landscapes” that attempt to give tangible form to inner emotions and universal experiences that include unbridled joy, grief, and heartbreak. She produces her works through a meditative process and devotes particular attention to movement, light, color, and sound. Olmstead views her paintings as restorative icons that remind viewers to seek peace and promote healing in their lives. Olmstead was named a 2022 Repaint History winner and recognized by Gillian Jason gallery for her professional achievements. She recently completed her first international residency in Orquevaux, France and looks forward to sharing the works she produced while abroad.
