After a career in psychology, I developed a visual arts and creative writing practice. My visual arts practice has become more politically orientated, focusing on experiences of women and anti-war, anti-totalitarian subjects. I have had several solo exhibitions and 2020 - 2021, plan several exhibitions, both solo and group shows. Creative collaboration is of great interest to me. For example, I am currently working with a composer and opera singer by providing lyrics to new music. I am keen to develop collaborative work in any genre.
My name is Christine Croyden and I’m a playwright and lyricist. I also work as a facilitator, run workshops and tutor creative writing subjects at The University of Melbourne. WEBSITE: christinecroyden.com
