Chris was born in Felixstowe, Suffolk, in 1954 and has been painting watercolours professionally since 1980. He now lives in Weardale, Co. Durham and specialises in landscape, seascape and architecture. Many of his paintings are in public and private collections in this country and abroad.
Chris draws inspiration from the landscape surrounding his home in the Pennines, and from the Lake District , especially from the effects of light and changing weather. He finds watercolour the perfect medium for his subjects.
