Chris attended Hastings High School and graduated from Rhode Island School of Design, earning his BFA. He has been working as a freelance illustrator for the past fifteen years. Chris' dedication to painting has never ceased. When he's not working as an illustrator, he is painting. He is currently part of the Gallery on Cedar and has had many other showings around the New York area.
For me, painting is an exercise in the pushing and pulling of warm and cool colors, bringing the viewer in and around the painted surface. I still look for strong compositions driven by the image, only part of this is done by color itself. Using color as a compositional devise.
