'Best of Napa' Award
Trying to keep up with Christine George can be time consuming. For starters, she an instructor in the School of Graphic Design. That's one the reasons she is the recipient of the 2015 'Best of Napa' Award. That's not all she does, however.
You might find her riding trails in and around Napa on horseback. She's loved horses her whole life. And, she understands horses. You'll notice that when you see her paintings. Those horses look like they are looking right at you.
Again, that's not all she does. As an official track photographer for Churchill Downs Kentucky Derby and the Triple Crown, the photos hanging in her studio make you feel like you're standing at the wire with the winning horse.
Christine is known for her pro-bono work, assisting organizations and individuals with the Napa Valley Art Association and in the community. That's another reason she was this years winner of the award.
When you visit her studio in Napa, you'll quickly realize she means it when she says she's living her dream...right here in Napa Valley.
