  • We added a new artist today to the list: Christine Lehman! Christine is a painter and artist who lives and works in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. Inspired by nature, Christine's work explores the beauty and wonder that can be found in the flora and fauna that surrounds us. Her paintings challenge the viewer to take a walk through her dreamlike and mysterious gardens, but reminds them to stay on the path. There are thorns beneath the petals and dangers lurk just beyond the trees. Although she began drawing and painting at an early age, Christine only started to focus earnestly on her work in early 2010 and has since begun to receive recognition in both local and online art communities. Her work is currently on display at the Lotus Moon Gallery in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania as well as many local businesses. In October of 2015 she was awarded "The People's Choice" selection for her mural "Hope Blooms," currently on display in downtown Chambersburg.
