Biography / Statement

Chris was born in Suffolk in 1952. He studied at Ipswich School of Art followed by a post graduate year at Wimbledon School of Art. This led to working as a graphic designer in central London, running a successful yacht chandlery and working freelance as a fine artist and illustrator. He has taught fine art in a number of colleges and institutions and currently teaches full time at St Vincent College in Gosport. His work is multi-disciplinary, often biographical and reflects his varied interests. Drawing is central to his practice, as are the relationship of line and form.

Chris is passionate about the sea and this is a recurring theme in both his two and three-dimensional work.

He has been a member of Art Space, Portsmouth for the last ten years and has exhibited painting and sculpture both in his native East Anglia and along the South coast.
