Sharing my passions
I am very fortunate and am now able to combine travelling, painting and sharing my journey with others. I love to share my joy of this beautiful country and planet with my collectors, capturing natures beauty on canvas. I look to pick up the abstract qualities of the landscape and create something new and exciting. I want my collectors to have something unique, strong and powerful that when they look at it, they feel there is no hesitation no holding back.
My collectors say they feel the vibrancy and joy in my work and I’m so pleased they get to live with, and feel that energy in their homes and offices everyday.
What my lovely collectors say
Our painting is of a local coastal scene. Chrissy sees colours and shapes in the rocks and water that are almost abstract and bring the canvas to life. The colours look amazing in our room, its is unique and much admired peice.
I love the colour, movement and vibrancy of Chris's artwork. I have a stunning painting on my wall at home and it gives off happy vibes. Everyone who visits comments on it.
Chris's work sings of joy and calm, colourful and textured, just as real live scenes. I love the landscapes, still in love with the very large tryptic of stunning trees in the forest, amazing connection to nature!!
I have a country friend who loves chickens. What better present than a rooster painted by Chris. He has so much personality, colour and texture ... even attitude ... that he completely springs to life. He now sits happily on a wall in the Hunter Valley.
The challenges of composition and palette are paramount when working in abstraction, as there is nowhere to hide, no figuration to divert attention from the purity of the application of paint. The paint is applied by instinct, feeling.
" I feel guided with every palette knife mark. Not knowing what will happen when I apply paint, taking my time to apply every stroke. From the first mark the painting is finished and if I feel guided I add another mark and another, until something in me or the painting, never quite sure which says stop your done."
