Christine Modenhaus grew up in Germany and started her career as a journeyman cabinetmaker in 1993. After working in cabinetry and boat woodwork for some time, she studied civil engineering. Eventually she missed working with her hands, and returned to artistic endeavors, transitioning to metals. Christine completed the Applied Arts program with emphasis in Jewelry and Metalwork at San Diego State University in 2005.
