East-German born artist, Christine Melchior works as abstract painter and designer based in Hamilton.
Christine began her artistic career at the early age of 11 as a pupil of Rolf Fleischmann, an etching artist in Thueringia, Germany. She explored portrait and landscape drawing for many years and later studied printmaking and small business management. When she immigrated in NZ in 1999 her main focus was the establishment of her own business after having travelled NZ for one year.
She currently serves as Vice President at the Waikato Society of Arts in Hamilton.
Her work can also be found in private collections in Germany, Dubai and UK.
CooperAitken is dedicated to supporting the local communities where we are based – Morrinsville, Matamata and Thames and when the Herd of Cow opportunity arose we were delighted to become the naming and founding sponsor. Supporting this project was a thank you to the local community, as we celebrated 100 years of providing Morrinsville with accounting services in 2014.View website
