Experience

Christine's writing skills grew as a result of her creative input as an art director for many in-house advertising departments and a music publication, and as an Associate Editor at 110 Magazine. In her early years, Christine wrote music reviews for BAM Magazine. Running J and C Estate Sales and graduating from the Asheford Institute of Antiques endowed her with the expertise and knowledge she now shares as a contributing writer for WorthPoint, the international authority on identifying and valuing antiques and collectibles.

Education

Studying graphic design at UC Berkeley Extension and graduating as a certified appraiser from the Asheford Institute of Antiques provided Christine with the perfect tools to appreciate the esthetic elements of interior design, as well as the provenance and care of such items.
