“I work to find the memory behind the image you send; that special person or pet in your life, whether passed or living; or that romantic view that means so much to you; a seascape, a beach, a townscape or landscape. It will be your very own commission.”

“Chris is the most talented artist. I asked Chris if he would from paint a portrait from photo of our dog Xena as a present for my husband for his birthday. Along the way, I received sketches of the progress. The final portrait is so life like it’s incredible! The attention to detail is fantastic, down to the white tip of Xena’s tail.   L.
