Although born in Frankfurt, Germany, Christine grew up in the Denver area. She discovered her love for the piano at an early age, taking piano lessons and accompanying vocal groups during her school years. Studying business at the University of Colorado, Christine was inspired by new age pianists George Winston and Peter Kater. The piano remained a gratifying hobby, playing occasionally, often at weddings for family and friends. However, it was several years later, after the loss of her mother, that she rediscovered her passion for the piano and began composing.
With no formal training in music composition, Christine uses the piano to voice emotions and experiences. "Playing the piano is an emotional release, often an escape. To move people with my music and to be able to share it with others is truly a joy. My style is a mixture of contemporary classical and new age. I once heard someone describe this piano style as "heavy mental" - and I thought it was farily accurate! Relaxing and soothing, yet interesting enough to be introspective."
In 1991, Christine debuted on a piano compilation album "Piano Portraits" with Sugo Records, and after that, "Summer Stories". She continues to compose and record her compositions and released several CDs, including a Christmas album and a collection of childrens songs. Her music is also heard on Muzak, Pandora, Sky FM, Whisperings Solo Piano Radio, CMS and Healing Health Care Systems, as well as available on major digital download sites. Christine resides in San Diego with her husband and two sons, who are a constant source of support and inspiration.
