Hello my name is Chris and my main goal is to get people to 'see' my work. I mostly work strictly in charcoal however, I also work in colored pencils, ink, and pen. I especially love free hand pen sketches! I majored in Graphic Design and Engineering Design Graphics but neither was for me. I kept coming back to what I loved most...traditional art. All the work you see is self-taught. At the end of 2011, I started taking my art seriously and started selling and doing commissions and began entering art shows. I joined the Summerville Artist Guild in 2012. I won a ribbon at the 2014 North Charleston Arts Festival and most recently won The People's Choice Award for the 2015 Summerville Artist Guild All Members Show.
