About Christine

Christine Brallier has been creating art since childhood and hasn’t stopped! She grew up in Los Angeles studying art and music through high school. Then, after years as a preschool teacher, she received her M.A. in psychology, focusing on children and art therapy. In 2005, she discovered and fell in love with the art of mosaics. Her award-winning art has been published in several books and her mosaics have been installed in public spaces in California, Texas, Michigan, Kentucky, and Australia Zoo. Her children’s book illustrated with stained glass mosaics was published in 2013.
