Christina Hornby is a certified McGown teacher and has a BA in Art from Siena Heights University. Christine is the owner/proprietor of Green Dragonfly Studio, which specializes in rug hooking, fiber arts, watercolors, and interior accent pieces. Green Dragonfly Studio is both an outlet for her fiber works but also supplies tools for other artists and craftspeople. Rug Hooking is Christine’s special outlet for design and use of color. She enjoys designing patterns for herself and other hookers. Born and raised in Holland, Michigan, Christine comes from a long and rich heritage of artists dating back to her mother and grandmother who painted landscapes and other subjects in oils.Following in their footsteps Christine has enjoyed her pursuit of art since she was a small child and has switched from oils to watercolors, to fibers. The foundation of most of her art is the fun that comes from playing with color. She enjoys concepts of design and the need to create art that is both rich in heritage and contemporary. She applies her knowledge of art history and crafts to historical re-enactment, educating the public on the importance of arts and crafts in their communities. Her work is currently in local collections of JSJ Corporation, a Grand Rapids law firm and private collections, as well as at Grand Valley State University.
