Christine Kowal Post
(Valley of Crows)
Christine who is of Polish-Welsh origin finds the role of women in Celtic history intriguing.
Her woman wears a horned and antlered helmet, just as warrior Celts did in historical times.
(The horned helmet was not invented by the Vikings, it was a Celtic idea). But her female is
not particularly warlike, she is pantheistic - a woodland spirit as much as a warrior. Christines
work belongs to a narrative tradition where myth and experience produce works which are
themselves modern myths. Her finished work is painted and lyrical.
Christine was born in Nigeria of Polish father and Welsh mother. She took BA joint honours
in fine art and Italian at Aberystwyth, and also studied in Florence before travelling widely.
She has had many solo and group exhibitions in Britain, Europe and USA. Now based in
Sussex, Christine has carried out numerous commissions and has work in many public
