Colour and texture are my prime motivation for painting‚ I love it. Living close to the beach‚ the changing natural environment provides a wealth of vistas for my creative explorations using all manner of materials for application of both acrylic‚ oil paint‚ combined with traditional drawing materials such as charcoal‚ ink‚ pencil and oil pastels and collage. I enjoy the tactile nature of impasto materials‚ it has led me to use the palette knife more and more to achieve to goals. Often I start my paintings with very thin paint and slowly build the layers and finishing with very thick textures. Chris has won many awards‚ published dozens of magazine instructional articles‚ sold hundreds of paintings world wide and continues to enjoy teaching her enthusiastic painters.
