Chris retired several years ago which gave him the time he sought to follow a life s ambition, to paint. Having spent some years in design and brand imaging concepts. Pastel was his first love, finding the tactility of the medium and wonderful vibrancy of colour irresistible, which lead to the need to take instruction. Watercolour was the principle medium studied, a hard taskmaster but, oh such pleasure in creating. Latterly Chris has begun exploring the Oil medium, once again finding complete pleasure in the creative process. Chris cannot envisage a day without painting in one medium or another, sometimes several!. Retirement has been a joy beyond expectation.
