About Christine Hayward

Contact Info & Links

rtistic expression has long been a fundamental aspect of Christine's life.  Oldest child of a Naval officer, she grew up moving around America as well as around the world. This experience has given Christine a broad view of cultural expression and esthetics, contributing to the versatility in her art skills. Christine graduated from the University of Massachusetts with honors and recognitions, studied Architectural Restoration at the Swain School of Design, and has taken many additional specialty courses.

Her business took shape in 1983 with a project at the Boston Designer's Showhouse. From there a longstanding relationship with the New England design community, other showhouse projects and private clients has kept her busy for several decades. Clients have included The Cooper Group (Celeste Cooper), Bierly Drake Associates, Albert Columbro Interiors, William Hodgins, Anne Grasso of Providence, RI, the furniture company  "Domain", and many others. She has been published in Metropolitan Magazine, House & Garden, The New York Times, Boston Magazine, Home Magazine, and a cover on Design Times, an interior design trade magazine, as well as other venues. Although most of her work is in the Northeast, she also has artwork in homes from New York to Aspen to La Jolla.
