Christine Buckton Tillman

Artist Christine Buckton Tillman

Christine Buckton Tillman hails from the great Northern Chicago suburb of Libertyville, IL-home of the Wildcats. Buckton is her maiden name but she made it her middle name because she takes her grandmother's advice. She acquired the last name of Tillman when she married a nice boy from Maryland who she met in year four of her seven-year stint as an Iowan. She spent time at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, and earned her MFA from the University of Iowa.

Christine is primarily a very flat sculptor who draws more often than she makes sculptures. Her main interests as an artist lie in ideas surrounding the handmade, celebrations, and man-made interpretations of natural forms.
