About Me

Christine Hubbell is an Indiana artist and illustrator working primarily in colored pencil. Her art explores the beauty and diversity of native plants and of breeding and migratory birds. Christine earned a foundational certificate in botanical and scientific illustration from the Denver Botanic Gardens, and her work has appeared in juried exhibitions. She continues to study local flora and fauna through drawing and field sketching.

Her drawings illustrate birds and plants with rich color and realistic detail. She develops the paintings from initial sketches and research, working both in the field and in the studio from natural materials as much as possible. Each piece is built layer by layer on drafting film.

Christine is a past volunteer for the Audubon Society and hopes her art will inspire delight in birds and native plants.
