Christine Francis grew up in neighboring Massachusetts but spent many summers at camp in Rhode Island as a teen.  She attended the School of Visual Arts and Boston University before moving permanently to Rhode Island in 1997 to run the Summer Programs at RISD.  Following her administrative position, Christine taught Two-Dimensional Design in the evenings at RISD for many years.  She is an illustrator who has done a fair amount of editorial work; her proudest of which is having illustrated the covers of local author Paul DiFilippos first four published books.  She has shown work locally at the Bristol Museum, Spring Bull Gallery, RISD CE Faculty Show and the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative.  

While an artist by trade, Christine has always been a collector of things as well.  Her collections range from ephemera to tin lithographed toys; and from vintage souvenir pennants to the artwork of others.  Her own work is in the medium of collage and construction; with an aged aesthetic;  clearly merging her interests.

Currently a resident of downtown Providence, Christine owns Carmen & Ginger; a vintage store located in the historic Arcade Providence.
