Christine Shanks

I am an image maker, designer, and educator. I feel at home on the computer and working by hand in the studio. 


I have experience in fine art and commercial work. Some of my specialties are design (web, interactive, and print), motion graphics, printmaking (utilizing both traditional and digital processes), and photography (alternative processes, digital, and film). 


For more than 15 years I have shared my expertise with students as a professor in higher education, as well as through workshops and lessons for students of all ages. New tools are presented to us everyday in the electronic age. I strive to ensure the graphic design program at Tompkins Cortland Community College is keeping abreast with the demands and changes of the ever changing professional field of graphic design.
