Fanny Lam Christie trained in oil painting with Professor Chen Shou Soo and Angela Lattanzi in Hong Kong and in the Combined Studies at Edinburgh College of Art.

With a background of Chinese ink painting and calligraphy, Christie has developed a technique of diluting oil paints and using a layering process to achieve a translucent and fluid effect. She builds up her paints with brush strokes interchanging with the palette knife, cloth and wood strips to achieve interesting marks and texture.
