Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Growing up in NY State’s Hudson Valley, the easy access to Manhattan’s world class museums and galleries, and close proximity to the art colony of Woodstock, influenced and inspired Christine Debrosky to pursue a career in art. Her first serious medium was watercolor, gifted from her parents, who recognized her talent, and oil lessons followed as well. Early in her career, she worked and exhibited extensively in watercolor, painting en plein air in all seasons, learning about color, light, and pigments.
She then took an eye-opening workshop in pastel, which marked a change in her work, to a looser, more impressionist bent, which started to earn her rainbows of ribbons and numerous exhibition opportunities. Gallery representation, as well as showing with such groups as the Pastel Society of America, American Women Artists, and Societe des Pastellistes de France echoed her growing career. She has earned signature status with the American Impressionist Society, PSA, and was inducted in to the Master Circle with the International Association of Pastel Societies. Coming full circle, today she has added oil painting to her repertoire, and has exhibited with the prestigious Oil Painters of America.
Her work has been included in numerous national and international magazines such as American Artist, the Pastel Journal, Pratique des Artes, Southwest Art, and PleinAir magazine, as well as on the set of “Nights in Rodanthe” a Hollywood movie, and “ Hart in Dixie”, a popular television show. She has been listed in Who’s Who of American Art since 1995, is published world- wide by Winn Devon, and is in the collections of numerous universities and corporations , such as Standard & Poor’s, and Pfizer Chemical, to name two. In 2014, she was one of ten American artists invited to exhibit with Societe des Pastellistes de France, an organization which boasted Edg
