Since the young age of three, Christine has been fascinated by the piano, her childhood classical training is evident in her melodic and thematic compositions, while rich harmonies reflect her background in accompanying various choral groups. From Chopin to Joplin, her influences were varied and many, and she also enjoyed creating her own arrangements of popular songs. While earning a business degree at the University of Colorado Boulder, Christine was inspired by George Winston's new age genre of solo piano, yet the piano remained only a hobby for years. In 1990, her mother passed and Christine immersed herself into the piano to comfort her grief and voice her emotions. These early compositions featured on well received solo piano compilation albums, Piano Portraits (1992) and Summer Stories (1994). Christine was inspired to release more her own piano music, Winter Tapestry (1997), children's music arrangements Childhood (2004) and Childhood II (2011), Believe (2004), Christmas On My Mind (2004), and Piano Stories (2006).
