Christine Woolley was born in Adelaide, South Australia and moved with her family to Huonville Tasmania when she was 7 years old and has lived there since. She is the mother of 4 children, two boys and 2 girls and the grandmother of 4 grandsons.
In early 2015 Christine suffered a stroke which required her to find an activity that stimulated her movement and improve concentration. Little did she know when she commenced painting reborn dolls just prior to this, that this would lead to her finding her true passion and ultimately her new career.
In 2016 Christine’s wonderful husband Paul passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. Paul had been an avid supporter of Christine’s love for painting reborn dolls. This rocky road led Christine to further pursue her passion and expertise in reborn doll painting.
Christine is now recognised globally as an expert in her technique of 3D hair painting.
“It is sometimes the worst journey in life that leads us to find out who we truly are.”
“Painting has become the sliver lining in overcoming the dark clouds that entered my life”
“I found doing the 3D Painting class a great experience where i got to understand the layering of colour to achieve the realism of real natural hair, it is easy to achieve with the understanding of the paint application I highly recommend Christine”
Debbie Sharman of Mini Kreations
“I had always admired Christine Woolley’s realistic 3D hair painting, blonde especially as it had always looked impossible to paint. Her class did not disappoint, I was able to adapt my own style and techniques and now can paint beautiful blonde hair with confidence.”
