Born 1971, Gorton Manchester. Chris worked in the building trade after leaving high school. In the last decade Chris has emerged as a rising star of the art world, due to numerous publications & TV appearances, notably BBC Gardener’s World in summer 2008. Chris's work is of everyday life in the North and with a key focous of life on English allotments.
Now his paintings are in high demand and purchased by buyers both at home and abroad who find a magnetic appeal in the secret world of garden sheds and rugged pennine townscapes. Now a major contemporary artist with a national reputation, he is widely recognised for his unique style, and like most prolific artists, he is a compulsive painter and absorbs ideas for his painting wherever he is including his own allotment. His trademark features of bold colour, ordinary everyday situations, and quiet humour strike a chord with serious collectors and art lovers everywhere. In 2012 Chris became a member of the Association of British Naive Artists.
