Chris was Creative Director of a leading advertising agency in London. Never having done a proper day’s work in his life (Chris’s words, not ours!), he moved to Lymington and took up painting full time.
Chris likes painting foliage and ‘the chaotic, messy bits of nature – the bits people walk past or over without noticing’. Working in oils and at life size, Chris has a meticulous eye for detail and a wonderfully quirky view of the world.
He has exhibited widely in London, including the Brick Lane Gallery, the New English Art Club, Jozes London 2011; and the Mall Galleries, where he won the prestigious Company of Painters and Stainers Award. Regionally, Chris has exhibited at the St. Barbe Museum, Lymington, the National Open Exhibition 2010 in ChIchester and Art in the Park, South Yorkshire.
Chris has paintings in collections throughout the UK, and in Berlin, Geneva, Italy, Jersey, London, New Zealand and the USA.
Coastal Gallery is delighted to stock a regularly changing selection of Chris’s paintings. Please contact us for further details re sizes, prices and availability.
