Christine Walker is a visual artist and writer. She developed the Read to Write Books blog to accompany her practices as writing teacher and consultant. The Read to Write Books curriculum was inspired by her MFA in Writing and Literature studies (Read One Hundred Books, Write One), knowledge of creative process, experience as visual strategist, and love of reading and writing. She uses whole-brain thinking and sensory approaches, as well as her branding and communications expertise, to help writers improve their writing craft and achieve publishing goals.
Christine is the author of A Painter’s Garden: Cultivating the Creative Life, (originally published by Warner Books) is a collection of paintings, drawings, and personal narratives inspired by her gardens and journal sketchbooks exploring creative process. She is the co-author with musician Dennis Hysom and the illustrator of Wooleycat’s Musical Theater, an award-winning children’s book with song CD, published by Tortuga Press.
Her multidisciplinary career encompasses visual art, visual facilitation, design, writing, teaching, and public speaking. Her paintings are exhibited in galleries and private and corporate collections. She holds an MFA in Writing and Literature in Fiction from Bennington College, an MA in Creative Arts Interdisciplinary from San Francisco State, and a BFA from the University of Kansas.
In her branding and strategic visualization work, she particularly enjoys working with clients committed to innovation, sustainability, economic equity, and health and wellness. She was the volunteer Creative Director and “spark” for Bibliophoria: Celebrate Book Arts, sponsored by Sebastopol Center for the Arts and Copperfield’s Books, in the summers of 2011 and 2013.
