Christine Lloyd Walker BA ATC studied Textile Design at Birmingham College of Art (now Aston University) from 1967 to 1971 and then at the University of Sussex. After a teaching career she took up mosaic design in 2000 exhibiting with the British Association of Modern Mosaics and Open Houses in Brighton and Shoreham. She began painting large landscapes on canvas in acrylic in 2008. Christine has been involved in mosaicing children's drawings in the Fostering Centre and Fairlight School in Brighton..

Always inspired by modern abstract artists and designers from Kandinsky, Klimt, Klee and Hundertwasser Christine has looked  for diverse and innovative ways to work with ceramic floor and wall tiles to combine colour and movement. Sometimes tesserae are small, sometimes large, but more inclined towards mosaic as art rather than craft.

An occasional canvas in acrylic or oil will be a mood of colour and movement; watercolours from still life and floral observation.

Christine was brought up in North Wales where her local hero was Kyffin Williams. In 1971 she found herself in Brighton, a great centre for all things artistic and cultural. Here she has a mosaic workshop where she can be found pottering about most days.

Exhibitions include galleries in Cardiff and Stratford, The Grange in Rottingdean, Shoreham Airport Art Deco Building and artists Open House exhibitions as part of the Brighton and Adur festivals in Sussex.

She exhibits under the heading of "Cracking Mosaics" and is a member of the Contemporary Mosaic Association networking website and the British Association for Modern Mosaics.

Christine will have a studio in Tolo, Greece, from January 2017.
