Chris was born in the Midlands, then moved to Bristol with his family. He attended The Royal West of England Academy and was taught Life Drawing by the late Sir Anthony Rossiter. He continued his studies at Somerset College of art choosing Fine Art and Graphic Design.
Pursuing a career as an illustrator in the 80’s, Chris went on to spend time in France and Spain studying portraiture. For many years he worked as a professional portrait artist, and while living in Spain, also developed a passion for landscape painting. His current work is a coming together of the two genres. Chris has taken part in many group and solo exhibitions in Spain, Scotland and England, as well as being busy with commissioned work. He lives with his wife in West Lothian, Scotland.
