"ChristineThe paintball warriorwith art in her blood,jumping into the flood ofemotions, running towardadulthood.A family well in tune,a room, a canvas,Christine sees with anartist's eye, drinking inthe colors and textures,becoming the young woman shewas meant to be.A Renaissance woman in trainingdetermined to put her markon the world,one ball of paint at at time"
