Biography
Chris paints in oil, scenes of Landscape, and Wild Life, capturing moments of sunsets, and scenes with animals.He paints in washes of colour, building up to give life to his paintings and a three dimensional feel and a feel of real depth and colour perspective.

Chris has exhibited successfully at Art in the Park (Pmb.) Artists under the Sun (Zoo Lake,) Norscott Manor, Jan Smuts House, Boardwalk (Pta East) and other Venues, and sold to people from UK, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia, USA and India. With his extensive travels and adventures all over the world, Chris finds South Africa and neighbouring Countries, to be an Artists paradise. He has painted scenes from the Wild Coast, Natal Drakensberg, Magaliesberg, Pilanesberg, Kruger Park, and his favourite Wilderness of the Kalahari in Botswana, where he farmed until recently, and his Family all live, and also Namibia.
The strongest influence in my life was growing up in, and getting to know, the untouched Wilderness of the Kalahari in Botswana, in the early 1950ís. Hunting with Bushman as a small boy, and Farming as a young man, taught me a respect and love for that never ending Savannah of that great Wilderness, never to be seen again on the same untouched and vast scale. I thank our Maker for that privilege of seeing it then, and now for the opportunity to express that love in my artwork..
