Hello! My name is Christine, and I'm an emerging watercolorist and an award-winning writer who traveled around Europe, the UK, and the USA as a petsitting vagabond and digital nomad for three years. Now I live in Portland Oregon with my partner and our four cats.

Since 2015, I've been developing my style as a watercolorist by studying great artists like Tilen Ti and Jean Haines. I adore their loose style and use of color. Before this, I worked mostly in realistic acrylics. I've started working in acrylic again, as well as pastel pencils and charcoal. I'm currently interested in experimenting with mixing media in my creations, with watercolor still as the main focus. 

Additionally, I've written eleven books, as well as about two dozen short stories and hundreds of blog posts/articles, under both my name, Christine Rose, and the pen name O. M. Grey. If I write anything else, I might try my hand at a play. Find a complete list of my publications on my blog.


My initial goal is to build a community. I find so much inspiration and motivation when I know someone believes in my work. For as little as $1/month, you can be a part of my creative process and watch it all through my patron-only, exclusive content like process videos, behind-the-scenes videos and images, art prints, and an inside look at my travel adventures. Plus you can directly contribute to the creation of art, becoming part of my creative process. My patrons will always get the first peek at new creations.

Your generous contributions will fund art supplies and equipment for video production, so I can create more paintings for your enjoyment and education.

You can change your level of contribution or cancel at any time. 

IMPORTANT FYI: When you become a patron, you will be charged immediately upon joining and then at the 1st of every month moving forward. So if you join on March 28th, you will be charged on that day as well as on April 1st, five days later, and then every 1st of the month moving forward from there.

Check out my work and follow my travels on Instagram WatercolorInstagram Travel, Facebook, and Twitter.

Please also find my work at Fine Art America where you can purchase prints and many other fun items like mugs, pillows, and tote bags featuring my art. 

20 of 50 patrons
My first goal is to reach 50 patrons, to build a community and a dialogue with fans. As an artist, it's extremely validating and inspiring when people show their support, even in small ways. I look forward to your contributions to my creative process.
