Hit the Slopes

Skiers glide across the landscape as a regal forest sleeps beneath a veil of fresh powder in this 3-dimensional miniature photo diorama by Hudson Valley artist Christine Schukow. A window into a perfect day on the slopes, this joyful piece recreates the fresh pines and towering ski-lift through careful placement of vintage photography and clay fiber. Whether you're a dedicated ski enthusiast, or merely dreaming of an Alpine escape, this cool work of art is like having your own personal snow day, wherever it's displayed. Handmade in New York.

Christine has been working as an artist all of her adult life, beginning with the designing of silk-screened clothing, then jewelry design and for the past 18 years in the creation of these wonderful framed dioramas. As people view her work a smile usually appears on their face as feelings of nostalgia and a yearning for the simpler things in life overcome them. Images of a sunny day at the beach, a country carnival, a drive-in movie, grandmas cottage in autumn, camping out, a honeymoon at Niagara Falls or a bicycle ride in the countryside. All these images and so many more portray her inner self, expressed in her art. Christine’s hope is that you also will take moments in this busy world to reflect on and enjoy the simpler things in life.
