Hi, I'm Christine, creator and illustrator behind Opal & Ghost.
I'm an American-Portuguese living, currently, in Portugal, with my Italian husband and two American kids. I love to travel with the family and we’ve lived in many different places throughout the States and Europe.
I’m also an online Yoga/Barre
and language teacher who enjoys learning.
Apart from drawing, things I love include wellness, writing, pop culture and storytelling, especially that of the fantastic or involving strong women role models.
I reconnected with my love of drawing shortly after becoming a mom to our second child and started sharing my work and have had the privilege to help tell people’s stories through commissioned art and portraits ever since. I also use my drawings as happy reminders to stay well and inspired.
I'm so happy you're here... Welcome.
