Art was at the centre of my life as a child and adolescence and I always had a dream that I could become a full time artist.

The interesting thing is that my life of medicine has really led me on to teaching art and leading art retreats as I use the communication skills I learned at the bedside and the education skills I learned as a medical educator.

I have a sense of leading people on a holistic creative journey that improves their approach to their lives and has therefore extended my role in helping with emotional, physical and mental health in the art studio.’

The home studio (pictured) can be visited by appointment but you can see Christine’s work at the Lennox Arts Collective Gallery 2/72 Ballina St Lennox Head, currently open 10 – 3pm every day.

Prior to full retirement in 2016 Dr Christine Read was for more than twenty years a family doctor in Manly, NSW and later a sexual health physician and Medical Director of Family Planning, NSW.
