Chris started an early age when his artist mother encouraged him to draw before he could talk. Raised in the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire he followed the yellow brick road to London and has lived there ever since. 

He started his career as an architect so he could pay for food and his art materials. But his love of architecture meant that he has never left the profession and he ended up as a partner in an awarding winning practice.


To commit more time to his painting, he now runs a small architectural practice and balances both professions from his London based studio.
