Christine Moody, Designer + Artist

Christine was born with a pencil in her hand!

From a very early age, she loved to draw, paint, colour in, and all things art! This passion continues into adult life and she is lucky enough to combine her design and illustration skills into her ‘grown-up’ design profession and business.

Christine had neglected her drawing for a few years but during COVID-19 lockdowns, decided to undertake several online courses—one of which was Creativity in Entrepreneurship. The final assignment was to develop and implement a 12-month creativity plan.

The result was two-fold—an amazing result in the assignment and a commitment to make drawing part of her every day calendar of events. Christine has taken this idea a step further and created a new brand, Drawing Strength—because she can’t help herself—and to demonstrate the strength gained and personal satisfaction from revisiting a life-long, creative passion; starting and finishing every a new project; and the positive effect creativity has on both your work life and personal life.

Christine draws objects from her everyday life such as brooches from her jewellery collection or fruit from her fruit bowl. Christine accepts commissions to create an original piece of art featuring a favourite brooch or other jewellery piece (or a favourite piece of fruit or vegetable!).

A perfect gift for yourself or for your family and friends; or for Interior Designers and Architects to help personalise your client’s home or office.

Original Artwork—Commissions

An original piece of artwork is a wonderful gift for your love ones. The original artwork features a much loved brooch or other piece of jewellery—either costume or fine jewellery. In addition, Christine interviews the owner of the piece and creates a personalised website page to tell the story about the piece ie, history, significance, and memories et al. The personalised website page features a unique, password protected URL and QR code which can be attached to the back of the artwork when it’s framed. This is a great way to preserve family history for generations to come.

Christine also designs a range of personalised stationery featuring the original artwork.
