“I have spent most of my adult life in the Porthleven and Helston areas of Cornwall. In addition to my passion for cricket, I have always enjoyed coastal walking, both cliff paths and peaceful tidal estuaries. I cannot imagine enjoying any of this so much as when accompanied by my dog and my sketch book. I draw on fond memories as well as fresh images to inspire my painting.”
After an enjoyable career, initially as engineering draughtsman and later developing training schemes for adults, Chris is now able to devote more time to his long standing interest in art.
He has developed his own unique use of acrylics and oil paints and has become known for his originality and use of bright colours.
Chris works from his studio in Krowji in Redruth and at home in Helston. Visitors are always welcome. His paintings are on view in Lane Gallery, Truro, where he remains committed to the collaboration of local artists exhibiting there, and in Lizard Art, Trelowarren , near Helston.
