Christina Hepburn is a dedicated explorer, adventurer, and yogini; she has traveled extensively and has scuba dived all over the globe. Also qualified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, Christina’s love for the ocean started at a very young age. Ever since she was gifted The Little Mermaid at 5 years old, she instantly knew that she was “that girl”. She initially got certified in diving in 2000 only to add another dimension to a bone-fishing trip in the Turks and Caicos. 16 years later, diving has turned into a passion which is her core essence and the catalyst to her creativity and artistic expression.
In harmony with her underwater photography, Christina is a fine art painter fluent in watercolour, acrylic and oil media; she is an Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Her work is owned and displayed in collections worldwide including being gifted by the Federal Government of Canada to seven First Nations Chiefs celebrating a Peace Treaty signing in the province of British Columbia.
Christina is a published writer/photographer in both the scuba diving and real estate world. She is a regular contributor to Action Diver Magazine, primarily writing about marine conservation issues in the diving locations that she travels to. Christina shoots underwater with a Canon EOS 5Dsr in Aquatica Digital Housing.
Christina started her business career as a real estate professional and is the principle and owner of the well established Hepburn Real Estate Group— specializing in luxury residential and commercial property sales in Vancouver, BC for over two decades.
Artist statement: “I explore and capture the beauty of our underwater world with my heart and with the help of my lens. It is where I merge with Divinity and create compelling images. I then write and paint about my inner journey. This is my humble way of serving the planet through marine conservation.”
