Born in Tielt, Belgium, in 1957. Christine Comyn demonstrated a natural aptitude for painting and drawing at very young age and refined her artistic talents at the Saint-Luke Academy in Ghent (Belgium). Her artistic journey began in the early 80s by mastering the delicate and unpredictable technique of watercolour. Her paintings showed somewhat dreamy but always beautiful and sensual young females figures, often with suppressed emotions. 

By the beginning of 1990 Comyn chose to abandon her solely figurative style and unleashed a body of work that earned her recognition by a most discriminating international clientele. Refusing to adopt a wild and free-form style Comyn instead preferred to explore the potentialities of colour and rhythm, without neglecting the need for structure. The result: explosive colour compositions that possessed a unique pictorial tension amidst logical balance.
