I don't paint for any deep and meaningful reason such as to find myself or explore my inner thoughts. I paint because I love it!
Biography: As a child growing up on a farm in West Wales Chris was always very interested in wildlife of all kinds and enjoyed drawing and painting as far back as he can remember. In 1981 he attended a youth art/drawing course at the Slimbridge wildfowl and wetland Trust which fuelled his passion further. As he grew up and left school however life got in the way of his painting and he didn’t pick up a brush seriously again until 2004 on returning to Wales from Australia where he had been living for five years. Chris Chalk now lives and works as a professional artist in Pembrokeshire in West Wales. Painting in oils he paints a variety of subjects from portraits and pet portrait commissions to landscape paintings and seascapes. Recently Chris has been painting local Welsh landscapes based in and around the Preseli hills. Chris’ paintings are in private collections in Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Great Britain.
