Artist Bio

Chris attended Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida where he first experimented with scrap metal in a course led by fine artist and professor John Williams.  

   

 “The process I use to create my sculptures begins in the local junkyard. Sometimes the pieces are sketched out in advance with a preconceived notion as to what the final sculpture will become.”

 

 “My latest works have recently been revolving around critically endangered species and constitute a mixed media approach to the design that reflects a fragility to the subject matter. These sculptures juxtapose the “organic” to inorganic by transitioning the form from natural “flesh” to the cold harshness of man-made metal.”

 

Accomplishments

Chris won the People's Choice Award in 2012 in an art competition entitled ”All Things New '' and has collectors across the United States.
