Chris will be better known for his acting career playing parts in the Bill, EastEnders, Casualty and Judge John Deed to name but a few.
In more recent years his love of painting has taken a prominent role in his life and he has now had few successful solo exhibitions resulting in sales and commissions of his atmospheric seascapes and portraiture work.
Originally studying to become a sculptor at the Camberwell School of art in the early 70's Chris has always had a keen interest in the arts and his passion soon moved over to painting which then became his first choice of creative output.
The work he now produces retains his structural training acquired during his sculptural tuition in the use of strong objects such as trees and boulders to ground his paintings whilst allowing the surroundings to remain free and almost abstract in their nature.
With a distinctive colour palette, Chris's work is instantly recognisable, and his love of both the landscape and human nature is evident in his paintings.
Chris can often be found on the deserted Sussex beaches and the busy promenades, as much of his work is spontaneous in its nature as he loves to be taken by a mood or a moment from a broad subject base, whether it be the mildly comedic scenes in his life studies or depicting the strength of nature in the form of the granite rocks and swelling sea which occupy the beach close to his home.
Cloud Gallery are extremely proud to be working with Chris and his work can be seen across our Gallery network.
