Christine Lee Smith is a photographic artist whose explorations reflect on identity formation and embodiment, and how both are shaped through early attachments and a maturing spirituality. Her photographs hold the tension of being and becoming and consider how we become ourselves. Her work invites conversation with the viewer about the conflicts of identity formation, particularly in relationship with the prescripted formulas offered in Western culture, and offers space to wonder about the presence of the Divine in all parts of that process. Christine completed her MA in Spiritual Formation & Soul Care at Biola University. She is also currently completing her MFA in Visual Art from Azusa Pacific University.
