Award winning sculptor, Christine Knapp, a native of Dayton, Ohio, has been a professional artist since 1990. She is best known for her realistic bronze creations of both animal and human subjects. After attending art classes at the University of Dayton and studying with several well-known painters and sculptors, such as Lincoln Fox, Veryl Goodnight, Guy Coheleach, and John Seerey-Lester, Christine found her true love in sculpture. Response to her work in this medium has proven so successful that she now devotes all her artistic endeavors exclusively to sculpture. All of her bronzes are created by utilization of the age-old lost wax casting process. In order to better convey the spirit of her subjects, she travels extensively to obtain first hand knowledge through personal observation and her own photography. Of special interest to her is the wildlife of Yellowstone and Teton National Parks ecosystems. Native American culture is also a very inspirational force behind her work. Christine currently maintains her studio and residence in Lyons, Colorado with her husband two dogs and local wild residents (mule deer, elk, cougar, and black bear).
