About This Site
Nova Scotia artist Christene Sandeson has worked in her studio and in her hometown community of Truro, Nova Scotia, her entire life. In the 1980’s she received the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation award, co-owned Signatures Gallery of Fine Art, and produced the Secrets of Seeing (via Eastlink, formerly Bragg Communications). In the 1990’s and 2000’s Christene turned her attention toward teaching, providing art expression experiences to Federally Sentenced Women and teaching Visual Art 10 - 12 in the Public School System. Through those years Christene maintained a visual art painting practise and continues to create and exhibit her works to the present time.
