Christine was born into an artistic family on August Bresgen in Munich, Germany. She studied art at the "Meisterschule fuer Mode" in Munich, Germany and "Arteneum" in Helsinki, Finland. Christine started an art school for adults in children in Munich and Hamburg and has travelled the world extensively.
Christine Scheid’s works are printed using deeply bitten plates that often fall apart as her experimental process develops.
This results in her fairly realistic figures and/ landscapes becoming
strong abstract works. In her work, she wants to show that “ nature around her is beautiful, fragile and easy to destroy by man”
